Wildlife is an important part of ecological community as wildlife play an important role in the environment.

With only Earth available for the best survival and progress of mankind, preservation of a healthy environment is not just a fair deal, it is imperative too. Mankind holds the power to save environment by being a hero to generate better results for everyone.

Our Campaigns

At the Cornish Birds of Prey Centre, we are passionate about providing a caring home for mistreated, unwanted, injured and neglected birds of prey whether from private owners or from the wild. Many commercial centres breed and sell birds for profit to fund their organisation. This goes entirely against our ethos and only assists in creating a bigger problem. In recent years the influence of movies, media and financially lucrative markets has increased the number of unwanted birds. Our funding comes entirely from our generous visitors, sponsors and donors whose ticket purchases and contributions help us to keep the centre running all year round. We provide a permanent, caring safe haven for each and every bird or animal currently in our care now and in the future. Our aim, and the purpose of the centre is to educate our visitors, allow them to learn more about our magnificent and beautiful birds and provide a relaxed, informed and fun environment. Our hope is that this knowledge will prevent people impulsively buying birds of prey as pets and to enable them to understand the commitment that owning a bird of prey requires. We invite you to come and support the centre and the work we do, experience our fantastic flying displays, and learn more about these amazing animals.

JOIN US AND HELP US BY DONATION

The centre is run with a very small team, everything we do is done by self funding and we do not get any money for the work we do.It is therefore so important for us to have donations from the public either by way of our amazon wish list or in monetary value for us to continue to build new enclosures and support the wildlife already at our centre or the new ones to come over the years.

In just one day we go from a lovely field shelter for Dec and the four goats, to a field shelter that is beyond repair 😔. So goats have had to leave the paddock 😔.
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity. We are now only about £200 short of being able to order the timber.
If you think you could spare a couple of pounds towards our field shelter appeal, please donate to www.cornishbirdsofprey.co.uk

For all the people that were here Saturday during the very windy flying display, which saw Belle the buzzard get blown away, she decided to return to the centre first thing this morning. She was waiting in the carpark for Andy to walk up and feed the reindeer. She is a little superstar and certainly knows the area well. ...

There is certainly days when we feel like giving up. Today is/has been one of those days.
So the weather has been horrendous here the last couple of days and today it blew the field shelter over/through the fence. Completely and utterly ruined the shelter. So the goats have had to be taken out of the centre as they need shelter as they aren't waterproof. So they are up in the barn with the reindeer. Dec now has no shelter and is desperately missing the goats 😔. When are we gonna get a break. This rescueing animals malarkey sure is stressful at times. Never enough money 😢.
