If you have a favourite bird, and you would like to have a bigger part in it's life and welfare, then maybe Sponsorship is something you might like to consider.
Sponsors will have a brass plaque with their name and date of sponsorship engraved on it placed on their bird's aviary.
You will receive a Sponsor Membership season ticket which entitles you to bring 1 guest free of charge and any other guests that you bring along will receive a 10% discount. You will be able to visit anytime during opening hours in the summer months and by appointment in the winter. If your bird is part of our flying display, you have the opportunity to fly him whenever you visit.
You will get updates of your sponsored bird every 2 months along with pictures. You can choose whether to receive this by email or Owl Mail.
Sponsorship is for 1 year. You will have the opportunity to renew your sponsorship when the year is up.
Loki is one of our new arrivals for this coming season (2022). He is a juvenile American Kestrel. He is the smallest falcon in the Americas and he is very friendly. He like attention, and he will give you a chorus of 'twoee, twoee' as a greeting. Kids and adults alike will love him probably as much as we do. Like all of our birds, Loki has a story, which you will find out on your next visit to us.
Stanley is our 5 year old Crested CaraCara. He is a bit of an odd-bod, although he is a Falcon he has legs like a hawk. He is a southern/Latin American bird which is often called the Mexican Eagle. He can fly but likes to run. He can hunt but likes carrion. He is by far our cleverest bird and is up to all kinds of tricks
