The S.O.S. Education Experience

Part of our remit as a Registered Charity is to encourage a greater awareness of the need for the conservation of British owls and other bird-of-prey species. We are committed to educating & enthusing youngsters about not only the beauty of our native birds-of-prey, but the necessity & value of ensuring a safe environment for future generations of British bird-of-prey species in the wild.
