Anyone who has ever watched a Barn Owl hunting at dusk or dawn has surely been touched by the experience. A wonderful white form gracefully seeking its prey, floating silently over grassland and meadow... mystical, magical, amazing.
We have lived side by side with Barn Owls for centuries, but in modern times wild Barn Owls have become increasingly rare - and the reasons are all man-made.
The Barn Owl is a symbol of our relationship with the countryside, and the decline of this beautiful bird reflects our attitude towards the environment. All things are connected and no species can prosper in isolation - not even human beings. If we live in balance with nature, then Barn Owls, and so much other wildlife would thrive.
If you become a Friend of the Trust you will be helping to conserve this beautiful bird in the wild. For as little as 38p per week you can help us to continue our valuable work and ensure that Barn Owls will continue to be seen in the countryside.
Our suggested minimum annual donations are:
Family (including children at the same address) £30.
Donations made by standing order or on-line will save on our admin costs if you make a monthly standing order of at least £3. What else can you do for 10p a day?
You can save us money by opting to receive your Friends pack and future mailings by email – please put “email” in the message box on the next page.
If you choose to Gift Aid your donation we will be able to reclaim an additional 25p in the ‘£' from the Inland Revenue.
Children can also get involved by becoming ‘Owlets' (junior Friends of the Trust).
New Friends will receive a pack which includes :
|By post or||by email|
Benefits for Friends
- 20% discount to all Friends on work produced by Cornish wildlife artist Dick Twinney.
- Invitations to Barn Owl Trust events.
We do not have a visitor centre as our sanctuary is a place of peace and refuge for the owls, therefore disturbance is kept to an absolute minimum. It is on private land with no public access. However, you can always come along to a LLP (Lennon Legacy Project) Event to see our work at first-hand and meet our staff see Forthcoming Events. Please note: We do not display live birds. Also we are always looking for volunteers to help with various indoor and outdoor tasks so if you live close by and would like to help, why not email or give us a ring.
