Owl Rescue Centre is not open to day visitors (but offer night walks). This is why:
The owls that come into the Centre are wild owls in need of care. Once they have been successfully rehabilitated, they are released back into the wild to carry on with their normal existence as free and wild birds. Therefore, we limit the interaction and human contact for the following reasons:
- Wild animals are placed under unnecessary stress through human interaction
- We are very careful not to imprint on the owls in our care. Making wildlife use to people is not in their best interest.
- It is against our mission statement and believe system to keep any animal in a cage for longer than required to complete its healing process just for the spectator value it may have. We realize that this may contribute to funding for our projects, but our first and foremost priority lies with the well-being of the owls. All our decisions are guided by the following question: "What is in the best interest of the owls?"
Instead, we invite you to join us on a night Owl Walk through the Sanctuary every last Saturday of the month, when we support feed some of the released owls by placing food on the feeding platforms around the sanctuary. Guests may observe from a distance without causing any disturbance to the owls. This is done during the evening when many owls can be seen in their natural environment around the lodge area. Booking is essential: 082 719 5463 or firstname.lastname@example.org Currently, there is no cost for this but you are welcome to make a donation towards the upkeep of the Sanctuary and to support us in our cause to protect, rescue, rehabilitate and release owls back into their natural environment. Bank details can be found in the side bar.
