Birds of prey are being left vulnerable by bird of prey centres not being licensed under the Zoo Licensing Act. Our research (undertaken in 2018) revealed 40% of bird of prey centres were not licensed under this Act. It is our opinion that if these centres are open to the public for more than 7 days out of a year they meet the legal definition of a zoo and therefore should be correctly licensed under the Zoo Licensing Act. Please take action today by contacting your local authority and request that if bird of prey centres in their area meet the legal definition of a zoo they should be licensed under the Zoo Licensing Act and ask them to explain why if they choose not to license under this Act. Please forward on any replies to us. Just click on the map to find out the contact details of a centre near you that our research indicates is not licensed under the Zoo Licensing Act and who to contact to ask that if the legal definition is met it should be. Here is a template you can use to send to your local authority. DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE Thank you for taking action for birds! The previous wording on this webpage may have been taken to mean that some of the bird of prey centres mentioned were unlicensed. This is not what we meant as we appreciate that the centres are most likely licensed under separate regulations. Our point is that we believe if the centres meet the legal definition of a zoo they should be licensed under the Zoo Licensing Act, which provides increased protections that are not given under the other regulations. We apologise for any confusion.
