Being a small volunteer run Centre funds at most times are tight, but we still do our best to play our part in Wildlife Conservation!
We do this in a number of ways......
BREEDING PROGRAMMES/MANAGED STUDBOOKS.
Zoos & Wildlife parks around the world take part in managed breeding programmes and studbooks for vulnerable and endangered species and here at The Owl Centre we take part in a number of such programmes, including one for the Madagascan Teal, a small species of Duck native to Madagascar which is endangered due to loss of habitat and hunting.
SUPPORTING CONSERVATION CHARITIES AND THE PROJECTS THEY RUN.
Over the years the Owl Centre has supported various Wildlife Charities
& their projects, including The World Owl Trust & its Philippines project,
Chester Zoo (North of England Zoological Society) & their Philippines project.
ZSL London Zoo (Zoological Society of London) and the Tiger SOS Campaign.
Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) and the Spoon Billed Sandpiper Project.
We currently support----

RAISING THE FUNDS.
Over the years our Volunteers have undertaken a number of charity challenges to raise funds for the above charities and projects, from the Coast to Coast Walk and the Lyke Wake walk to our ''Wildlife Woof Walk'' where volunteers accompanied by a number of their 4 legged canine companions completed a 20 mile trek across the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors--facing 4 seasons in one day!, with sunshine, rain, wind and even a blizzard, a tough challenge but lots of funds were raised!
