Welcome to the Hawk and Owl Trust

The Hawk and Owl Trust is a national UK charity founded in 1969. It is dedicated to conserving owls and other birds of prey in the wild – and increasing knowledge and understanding of them.

We create and manage nesting, roosting and feeding habitats; carry out practical research; and welcome visitors to our wildlife reserves, education centres and outreach projects.

By working with partners to conserve the places owls and other wild birds of prey nest and feed, we also support many associated species – from field voles to skylarks, dragonflies to grass snakes – in a whole variety of habitats.

Message from Chris Packham | Hawk and Owl Trust President

“Please help by joining in. It’s one of the most effective ways you can help Britain’s birds of prey, as it helps the Hawk and Owl Trust with regular income to carry out its important work. It also gives the charity a stronger voice for these charismatic birds”.

Community Barn Owl Project

Barn owls survive and thrive in areas of rough grassland that can sustain good numbers of field voles and other small mammals for them to feed on. You can help to increase the amount of grassland and meadow habitat for barn owls by supporting our Love Somerset, Love Meadows appeal.
