Owls have become one of the most popular and well loved of all the Bird of Prey species. This one hour session enables children to meet two owl species and even have a close encounter with a Barking Owl!
This experience will include observing our owls in action, learning about their role in nature and identification techniques. There is also the opportunity to learn about owls’ eating habits from dissecting an owl pellet, if requested.
The Children’s Owl Encounter is limited to four children, generally aged 6 -15 years, and is usually located at the Garibaldi Hall. Please note that free-flying birds is weather dependent.
A certificate to commemorate your encounter is available upon request.
This experience can be purchased as a gift voucher that is valid for 12 months (please note that birds are available for encounters between March and November).
*Please book your encounter and check available dates with the Sanctuary by contacting us via our Contact Us page.
