The Hawk and Owl Trust is a national UK charity. It is dedicated to conserving owls and other birds of prey in the wild and increasing knowledge and understanding of them. We create and manage nesting, roosting and feeding habitats; carry out practical research and welcome visitors to our wildlife reserves, education centres and outreach projects. By working with partners to conserve the places owls and other wild birds of prey nest and feed, we also support many associated species - from field voles to skylarks, dragonflies to grass snakes - in a whole variety of habitats.
