Our centre opened it's doors to the public in February and is proving a hit with our visitors, Trip Advisor comments are proving this as well as the lovely comments from visitors personally!
To celebrate our opening we have chosen a vital charity to continue to support, the International Vulture Programme (IVP). Our African Hooded Vulture 'Ringo' is our ambassador!
Following a productive meeting with our friends at the Hawk Conservancy, we are excited to announce our new fund-raising project! Haven Falconry plan to raise £3000 to fund 10 vital Poison Response Kits for the International Vulture Programme in Africa.
