Further Reading. This leaflet lists books (both for adults and younger readers) on Barn Owls and related subjects.

Colouring-in Sheet. An introduction to the Barn Owl for younger readers.
Adopt a Barn Owl. By adopting a Barn Owl you will be helping to support one special bird but you will also be helping us to continue our vital conservation work to create a brighter future for all Barn Owls. At our sanctuary we provide a home for captive-bred birds that are too tame to be released and also, some wild Barn Owls that come here recover sufficiently to be released back into their natural habitat but other birds are unable to survive in the wild mainly as a result of road traffic accidents or injuries sustained from barbed wire fences and overhead cables. We house these birds in large aviaries, provide them with food, shelter, medical attention if required and a quiet life. A year's adoption costs less than 60p per week - but to the Barn Owl, your help is priceless.

Barn Owls Need Friends. You can support our work by becoming a Friend of the Barn Owl Trust. Friends receive a personalised pack containing Barn Owl information, a poster, a badge, and a car sticker, plus our annual report and two editions a year of our 16 page newsletter Feedback full of pictures and stories. Children can become Owlets and they receive a goody bag and their own personal ID cards. Donations from Friends go directly into supporting our conservation, education, research and information work.
