There aren’t many chances in life to get up close to and even touch an owl, but you can do just that at Screech Owl Sanctuary. The sanctuary was started 25 years ago with the aim of providing care and rehabilitation for wild sick owls and where possible returning them to the wild. If the owl is permanently disabled the sanctuary provides a comfortable home for them. The sanctuary also helps to raise awareness of the conservation needs of owls. So when you visit the sanctuary you are not only having a great day out getting to touch the owls, but you will also be learning about these beautiful creatures as well as helping to fund the fantastic work that the sanctuary do.
Just don’t tell Trevella’s owl Olly that you’ve been as he might be jealous!
