Suffolk Owl Sanctuary
The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary at Stonham Aspal in Suffolk was established as a registered charity in 2001, Our Sanctuary operates a comprehensive facility for the care & rehabilitation of owls and Birds of Prey from the region, and the promotion of owl conservation throughout the UK and beyond. The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary is supported by voluntary donations and admission charges from members of the visiting public. We are wholly reliant on these donations and admission charges for the upkeep of the Centre, the welfare of the birds and the funding of our many education, conservation and rehabilitation projects. All monies collected are used only for this purpose. Part of our remit as a Registered Charity is to encourage a greater awareness of the need for the conservation of British owls and other bird-of-prey species. We are committed to visiting schools in and around East Anglia educating & enthusing youngsters about not only the beauty of our native birds-of-prey, but the necessity & value of ensuring a safe environment for future generations of British bird-of-prey species in the wild. We also breed and release Red Squirrels and work with the “Angelsea project” in Wales who for some years have been working hard to build a wild red squirrel population on the Isle of Anglesea. We also treat sick and injured Owls and Birds of Prey brought to us by general members of the public. The Owl & Raptor Hospital at S.O.S. is fully equipped for the care and treatment of the many injured wild owls & other birds of prey which are brought into the Sanctuary every year. Many of these can be given a recuperative overnight pick-me-up before being re-released back to the wild shortly thereafter.
