Our Aims and Objectives;
Conservation of Birds of Prey through public education, captive breeding,
treatment and rehabilitation of wild injured birds of prey.
The main visitors centre is open to the public for limited dates each year (Please see our 'Open Days' section for more details). We run 'Experience Days' on all other dates throughout the year where visitors can get up close to our Birds of Prey and other animals (Please see our 'Experience Days' section for more details on the different experiences that we offer).
Education is on going to all visitors. The Centre undertakes more in depth education to specific groups and parties, from schools to universities and offers off-site lectures and teaching.
The Centre continues its captive breeding aims; to research species; breed from species not previously understood; maintain the collection and provide birds for demonstrations, both in the U.K and further afield.
We are a fully licensed and insured. We are passionate about educating people about birds of prey and the challenges they face in the wild. We strongly believe children are the future and a child who grows up loving nature and wanting to save it will be an adult that takes action.
Our Experience Days operate all year round
Experiences must be pre booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 07557 785621
All of our experiences are fun, educational and very hands on.
