Bird Conservation

Since 1970, Harewood Bird Garden has promoted an understanding of birds and their environment, through conservation, preservation and education. Today this is achieved by:

  • Creating an internationally respected centre for avian conservation.
  • Involving Harewood in world conservation strategies.
  • Fostering awareness of birds and their environment through interpretation.
  • Educating visitors through communication, activities and events.

Conservation is integral to everything we do. Each year, money generated from your ticket entry is injected into conservation projects in the Bird Garden, House and grounds.

As a designated zoo, Harewood’s Bird Garden is recognised for the richness of the rare species we protect. As such, we have an important responsibility to protect birds and habitats from extinction, and support conservation projects both in-situ and abroad. As an active member of BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) we help contribute to the 800 field conservation projects run across the country.
