Eagle Heights Wildlife Foundation
Home to one of the UK's largest Bird of Prey Centres, currently we have a collection of approximately 100 raptors
This includes over 50 species, many of which are now breeding at the centre or can be seen flying in our daily demonstrations. We have also become a wildlife sanctuary and house a variety of animals including, Meerkats, African Servals, Farm Animals, Reptiles, Huskies and more!
Eagle Heights is actively working on wildlife conservation here in the UK, centre based, full details can be found on our conservation page, and we are also assisting with conservation in West Africa.
Eagle Heights started in 1996 as a philanthropic family and friends’ organisation. It gained foundation status in 2014. Eagle Heights was founded by Alan & Sally Ames.
Day to day running is now undertaken by their son Jonathan, daughter Samantha and their capable team. Jonathan and Samantha have been part of Eagle Heights from the start and have the knowledge, passion and skills to continue the Foundation for the next generation.
The brother and sister team are focussing on some key areas for development over the next few years, the first is the movement of the Eagles from the inside ‘Mews’ to a new weathering outside, improving their enrichment and creating a more natural environment. Secondly is the aspiration to become an ‘Access for All’ attraction, raising money for facilities for disabled visitors and those with Sensory Needs as this is a personal passion for the two.
EHWF is proud to be a Silver awarded member of Green Tourism and every member of staff is equally as passionate about the environment. Some areas of the Centre are left wild for Conservation purposes. We appreciate that this may not look as ‘pretty’ or ‘tidy’ as if it was landscaped, but our ethos is to have as little impact on the area as possible.
Experiences are a huge part of our work. We feel that the time spent with the animals and learning from their keepers, will inspire them to be more aware about the conservation of our planet and its inhabitants. We currently offer Bird of Prey, Meerkat and Husky Experiences as well as VIP Activity and Photography Days. Full details will be found on their designated pages.
Photography is permitted inside the park for personal use only. Any commercial enquires must be emailed for the attention of Samantha using the contact information on this site. Written permission will be sent to you if/when granted.
