We’re still fundraising…please let others know about this post - keep telling everyone!🦉

Back in 2021 Huxley’s was taken over by Luke, following in footsteps of the amazing Julian Ford after 30 years of love and passion he put into Huxley’s. 🥰

However, it has very much remained the same over those years, despite Luke doing much needed repairs himself, it desperately needs urgent attention and a makeover! 🔧

Huxley’s is a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation, relying on amazing volunteers who give up their time out of love and passion for the amazing animals we have here! 🦅

We are looking to raise funds to revamp and enhance enclosures, replace furniture around the site and overall make it a fun, vibrant and unique experience. 🤩

However, we can’t do this without your help, we know times are tough, so if you can spare just simply £1 or £2 please donate, if you can’t, a share will help us too! 🙏.

Please don’t forget, we are volunteers, we rely on donations, please come and see the work we do, meet our animals and lastly check out our shop! 🛍️

Thank you for supporting us. 🥰

It was fascinating to hear about these extraordinary birds and associated conservation efforts.

Apparently staring into someone’s eyes for four minutes can make them fall in love with you…has Topaz worked the magic on you?! 🥰

We’re actually here to suggest an alternative Valentine’s or Galentine’s gift…how about sponsoring a bird here at Huxley’s for that special person in your life? 🦅🦉

You could choose for them or get a gift certificate and let them choose themselves - or how about a season ticket for Huxley’s? 🤩
