Eleonora d’Arborea fought against the king of Aragon for the independence of her island, Sardinia, and, while she governed – at the end of the fourteenth century and the beginning of the fifteenth century – she enacted various protection ordinances for raptors in the face of the activities of falconers, traffickers and merchants. In honor of such an outstanding pioneer of bird conservation, this sea hawk, slender, agile and traveler was baptized – discovered in 1836 on one of the sunny and rocky Mediterranean islets of his island – with the name of the last ruler of the island. Independent Sardinia.
Currently the marine cliffs of Sardinia harbor one of the largest breeding populations of this small hawk, being one of the best places in the world for his photography. The trip is programmed with the reproduction time of the Eleonora´s Falcon, which coincides with the autumnal migration of thousands of passerine birds, which constitute their diet.
