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.
We are not open for general admissions on a daily basis, this is because we undertake a lot of educational work off site at various schools, universities and organised groups. We also have an extensive breeding program and take in a lot of rescues -both require quiet surroundings for positive results.
So how do I visit?
You can visit us on one of our centre's Open Days. These days do not need to be pre booked and the list of dates, along with timings and prices, can be found by clicking the 'Open Days' tab at the top of this page.

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 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.
