Meet the owls & other birds
We’re not just mad about monkeys, you know! The Haven is also home to various species of owl, from the bright white Arctic Snowy Owl to the tiny Australian Boobook. We’re crazy about other types of birds, too. Kookie the Kookaburra is one of the noisiest and cheekiest creatures you’ll ever meet – he likes a joke and finds visitors very amusing, so don’t be offended if he laughs at you!
Many of our birds have come from zoos and private collections. Others were injured or rescued native birds from the wild. We have a ‘rescue and release’ policy – so that wherever possible, we care for the birds until they are well enough to be released back into the countryside.
