Owls For Education is part of HAWKSRUS Birds of Prey company, that have been visiting Schools for many years, providing educational talks, flying displays and hands on experiences. Gareth the owner of the company has a passion with all types of Birds and has over 70 in the collection.
Our mission statement is to educate the next generation in the native species of Owls that we have in the UK Which are on the decline at the moment, due to loss of habitat, bad weather conditons and secondary poisoning.
Owls are the most beautiful of creatures and we need to do all we can to protect them in the Wild. Educating children is the first step to secure their future.
Gareths wife Kirsty is a Primary School early years lead teacher and has helped to plan the sessions around the curriculum, great for year 2 SATs, Owl Babies, The Owl thats afraid of the dark, British values etc...
"The Owls were amazing! The children were totally engaged and they are still talking about the visit weeks later" The District Primary School, Newton-le-willows.
