We moved to our current location on the Goss Moor in October 1994, with 22 aviaries and 37 owl occupants, which seemed at that time to be an absolutely mammoth task.

We have now progressed to a grand total of 136 owls in our ever-growing 74 aviaries, but yet we still feel like the NHS sometimes with bed shortages!

We opened our new owl hospital on Saturday 9th November 2002 which has helped tremendously when treating the ever growing number of sick and injured birds of prey.

From here you can learn about our Siberian Eagle Owl breeding project, read an article about a pioneering cataract operation, view the numbers of sick and injured owls that the sanctuary has admitted or find out about how we came to win a BBC Animal Award.
