Screech Owl Sanctuary

Goss Moor, nr. Indian Queens, Cornwall, UK. TR9 6HP

Providing care and rehabilitation for wild sick and injured owls and ensuring their safe release back to the wild, when fully recovered, is the main function of the sanctuary. However, a comfortable home in a suitable environment is provided for permanently disabled birds. The sanctuary also promotes awareness of conservation needs of owls through education and involvement with schools and other organisations.

Visitors can see and touch the owls under staff supervision, and there is a guided tour of the centre. Disabled groups and special needs persons are welcome and are well-catered for.

There are daily falconry displays with owls and birds of prey. Owl husbandry and falconry courses or experience days are also offered. A lakeside walk offers views of wildlife on the surrounding moorland and there is a Rainbow play area for all age groups. Snacks are available at Tiggy’s Tearoom and visitors can buy owl souvenirs in the shop. Read more.
