Donations are a vital source of funding and go directly towards the conservation, education, rehabilitation and research work that we carry out with birds of prey. As a registered charity we rely on your support and are very grateful for all donations that we receive.

Opened by the Duke of Gloucester, the Hawk Conservancy Trust’s National Bird of Prey Hospital™ can receive and treat more than 200 sick, injured or orphaned birds of prey each year.
We want to share our passion for the conservation of birds of prey and educating our visitors about their importance is a fundamental element of what the Trust does at the visitor centre on a daily basis. This ranges from signs around the grounds to school outreach visits and training veterinary students.
Poisoning is the biggest threat facing vulture populations in Africa, and it has increased rapidly with the ongoing slaughter of elephants and rhinos. Poison response kits contain a range of equipment and first aid materials and are designed to reduce the impacts of poisoned carcasses on wildlife.
