We launched our first ever Bird Garden Fundraising Appeal, in a response to the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to support the work that continued behind the scenes daily whilst Harewood was closed for three months.
Thank you to all those who supported Harewood whilst we were closed, and for donating to our Bird Appeal. We’re delighted that we raised just over £8,000 which will contribute towards the care of the 300 birds in our collection and enable us to cover some of those costs incurred whilst the House and Grounds were closed.
Harewood House Trust is an independent charity which relies entirely on public support, and without income from admissions during the three months of closure, the fund has been a positive boost.
To thank you for your donations, and show you a glimpse of the work you have supported, there’s plenty to see on our YouTube and social media channels, @HarewoodHouse

10% of all donations raised have gone towards supporting International Conservation Programmes to ensure your money helps promote the study, protection and reintegration of indigenous species around the world. At Harewood, we are part of 17 different international breeding programmes; which facilitate managed breeding of endangered animals, such as our Bali Starlings, Edwards Pheasants and Andean Condors, with the ultimate goal of re-establishing them in their indigenous habitats.
