Weʼre raising £2,500 to Help Thirsk Birds of Prey Centre with the on going expenses due to remaining closed
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We had planned to reopen on the 12th April however updated government guidance recently received states that we are not allowed to offer flying displays, or any talks or demonstrations that would generate an audience and we feel this is a big part of what we offer. For most people the main part of their visit is seeing the birds fly free during our three daily shows and it will be difficult for us to restrict access to this area as we will of course still be exercising and training our birds still.
We have taken the difficult decision to delay opening until 17th May (government restrictions allowing of course). We have been in touch with our Local MP and other governing bodies to raise our concerns and seek clarification, If the situation changes we will reopen straight away.
I know many of you will understand how difficult these enforced closures have been for us but as always the health and safety of our birds, visitors and staff will always come before anything else.
We now have to budget for being closed for a further 5 weeks, yet again another blow to an already challenging year.
So once again, take care and we really are looking forward to seeing you all soon.

just a little something to help with having to stay closed in these uncertain times. I've not visited as yet but will definitely when you are open and I am also going to sponsor a bird of prey.
