Objectives

ICBP was the first Bird of Prey Centre in the UK, celebrating our 50th anniversary in July 2017.  We have bred more than twice as many different species of birds of prey as any other global centre.  Through our CEO Jemima Parry-Jones MBE, we have been involved globally in the vulture population crises in Asia and more recently in Africa.  In both areas, 98% of the population had been destroyed, and causes and solutions needed to be found, whilst captive breeding was used to maintain genetic material and save species of this most endangered of all bird taxa.  That apart, closer to home, we are involved in various conservation research projects, training, education and entertainment - sharing the beauty of birds of prey with the great British public, in a beautiful rural setting in Gloucestershire..
