Our Aims and Objectives;


Conservation of Birds of Prey through public education, captive breeding,

treatment and rehabilitation of wild injured birds of prey.




We are a small zoo with a big heart, offering unforgettable up close encounters and spectacular shows. Our 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, Outreach visits and Educational sessions all year round where you can get up close to our Birds of Prey and other animals.  Please see our 'Experience Days' and 'Educational Sessions & Events' sections for more details on the different experiences and bookings 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 zoo and we are fully 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.

If there is an animal involved in anyway, then the company requires this license.  This is to ensure higher welfare standards for the animals being used and greater public safety.
