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:
- We are very careful not to imprint on the owls in our care. Making wildlife use to people is not in their best interest.
- Wild animals are placed under unnecessary stress through human interaction
- 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 an Owl Sky Lounge event evening, when you will be able to observe the free living owls that feed from the feeding platforms around the reserve. Guests will observe different owl species from our newly built Owl Sky Lounge, while enjoying a delightful sit-down dinner, 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 Sanctuary. For bookings, please visit our Owl Sky Lounge Page. Limited space is available per event. Follow us on Facebook for updates on this exciting new opportunity.
Feel free to get in touch by using this Contact Form! We look forward to hearing from you.
