OUR AIMS

The Featherwell foundation

We have three main aims:

By working with local charities and communities in areas where endangered species are in decline, we can help educate people on how essential birds of prey are to the surrounding ecosystem and help achieve our vision of a world where people and wildlife thrive together.

We do not believe that unlicensed owners should keep birds of prey as pets due to the nature and unpredictability of the animals and the sheer amount of time and expertise it takes to keep them to a high welfare standard. Our aim is to rehabilitate and rehome poorly treated, captive birds of prey to suitable owners where they will be flown free and given the best life possible.

Our small, dedicated team will focus on educating the general public on why keeping birds of prey is a full time occupation and why, where possible, no bird of prey should be confined to a cage for all of its life without knowing the joy of free flight.

Conservation

Earth is for all of us. We'd like to keep it that way. This is why conservation is so important.

Education

The key to change, is knowledge. We are here to help educate and inform.

Rehabilitation

First Aid for our feathered friends. Giving a helping hand to birds of prey in need.

OUR AIMS

How We achieve our aims

At the Featherwell Foundation, we offer funding and ground level support for UK and overseas projects that are working towards conservation of both birds of prey and their habitats. Many raptor species across the world are struggling to find suitable territories where they can hunt for their food and raise their young which can have a devastating effect on the overall, wild population.

In order to achieve our conservation goals for endangered species, the Featherwell Foundation aims to work with the UK and International Government Wildlife authorities when required, to establish breed and release programs of threatened species of raptors and to procure sensitive land that is essential for the protection of these species.

Our team also works alongside other registered charities across the world to help build enclosures and provide care and medical treatment for wild and captive birds of prey for rehabilitation purposes.This will help alleviate the pressure felt by said persons who are suffering from anxiety, depression and/or suicidal tendencies by offering an outdoor space activity for them to be involved with.

Any bird of prey that is referred to our care will be assessed by our avian veterinary specialists and given the very best treatment in order to get them back in the air. Captive bred birds of prey that cannot be released into the wild are also treated and rehomed when possible.

Our charitable objectives

To promote for the benefit of the public the conservation and protection of birds of prey and their habitats

To promote humane behaviour towards animals, by providing appropriate care, protection, rehoming, treatment and rehabilitation of abandoned and/or cruelly treated, captive bred and wild birds of prey which are in need of care and attention by reason of sickness, maltreatment, poor circumstances or ill usage and to educate the public in matters pertaining to animal welfare in general and the prevention of cruelty and suffering among animals.

Who else benefits from the Featherwell Foundation?

Local communities across the UK and internationally by ways of education through volunteering opportunities at our rehabilitation facilities.
