Screech Owl Sanctuary
Recently celebrating its 20th year, the Sanctuary aims to provide care and rehabilitation for sick and injured wild owls in Cornwall. To ensure their safe release into the wild on recovery or, if permanently disabled, to provide a comfortable home in a suitable environment. It also aims to promote awareness of the conservation needs of owl species and their natural habitats by working with schools, youth organisations, groups and individuals of all ages. There is a Hand-Tame area offering an amazing opportunity to meet and touch a number of our hand-tame owls and learn about their characteristics. These owls have been hand reared for educational purposes and range from some of the smallest species in the world to among the largest.
