The Beginning of a New Friendship!
With over 80 owls and birds of prey, our collection is teeming with quirky personalities our regular visitors just cannot resist! Whether it's the grandmotherly Gracie, boisterous Cara or cheeky Doodles, there is sure to be that one special animal that "speaks" to you. For those that do leave a lasting impression, our choice of adoption packages will not only help open the way towards a new friendship, but also serve as an enduring memento of your visit.
Purchasing an adoption package is an ideal gift that will also help contribute to the centre's operation. One of the biggest ongoing expenses is food, particularly during the breeding season where both the parents and babies require vital nutrition. Adopting your favourite helps provide the optimum welfare standards by ensuring the provision of healthy, varied diet throughout the course of the year.
New for 2023! e-Adoption Packages
Our new e-Adoption Packages offer a great alternative to our physical adoption packages.
As well as being offered at a reduced cost, this instant digital download is available to access immediately following purchase, making it a great last minute gift.
What's more, purchasing an adoption electronically helps us save up to 39%* of the CO2 emissions generated by printing and delivering a typical physical package, allowing us to continue our conservational and educational work whilst minimising our environmental impact.
*Based on the estimated average CO2 footprint of printing and posting a physical adoption package compared with the e-Adoption digital delivery method (45.3g of CO2 down to 27.7g).

Who would you like to e-Adopt?
Printed Package Tiers & Prices
All adoption packages are valid for one year from the date of issue, until the end date shown on your certificate and adoption pass(es). To redeem your adoption pass(es), simply present at the till upon arrival. Note that each type of pass can only be used once per visit against admission for the named adoptee.
In situations where more than one person (including families or organisations) have been named on the adoption package, the voucher entitlement will still pertain to admission for one person.
As with standard admission, our adoption pass holders are eligible for same-day readmission and entry to the flying display, where one is available
