Announcing Conservation Partner - The Featherwell Foundation Charity



The Featherwell Foundation 

Conservation Rehabilitation Education



The Featherwell Foundation is a Registered charity in England 1203254 

Welcome to the Featherwell Foundation. We are a charity that focuses on the conservation of wild birds of prey both within the UK and internationally. We also provide essential care and rehabilitation for captive and wild birds of prey when required.

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.
