Hawk and Owl Trust is a national charity. We create and manage nesting, roosting and feeding habitats for owls and birds of prey; we carry out practical research to further our understanding of their conservation and behaviour and we welcome visitors to our wildlife reserves, education centres and outreach projects.
As top predators, birds of prey and owls are a barometer of the health of the environment. Conserving them involves conserving their prey, and the whole chain of life that supports them and their habitats. It is a ‘bottom-up’ process and we demonstrate this practically on our reserves where the abundance of raptors, owls and other wildlife bear testament to the conservation methods we advocate and practice.
