Wirral Barn Owl Trust

Between 1932 and 1985 the local Barn Owl population declined by 85% (Shawyer 1987). By 1999 Barn Owls were almost extinct on the Wirral peninsula. Wirral Barn Owl Trust volunteers have worked hard since then in an attempt to reverse the decline by working with farmers and landowners to provide nest boxes and foraging habitat. As a result, the population is beginning to recover but the situation is still precarious and we have a long way to go.

Making, installing and maintaining nest boxes for breeding and shelter is an expensive business for a small conservation charity and we desperately need funds to allow this important work to continue. We have no paid staff and rely on donations. Please help us!
