How can I help?
Collaborating in funding. You can sponsor a specimen, make donations or become a member.
Sources of funding
Public aid, agreements with companies, membership fees, sponsorship and donations.
Danubio, a male of Eurasian Eagle Owl that cannot be released because has advanced cataracts, lives permanently in Brinzal and takes care of the chickens of its own species that arrive at the centre every year. He arrived being an adult in 1991 and now is over 30 years of age!
An example to follow
The large English conservation organizations. They carry out a large number of conservation projects to protect species and habitats, and show an enormous capacity to involve people in the preservation of their environment.

A false belief
Night raptors do not bring bad luck. Quite the opposite! They consume lots of mice and voles.
A disturbing reflection
The Little Owl was the most abundant raptor in Spain. However, in a little more than 10 years, its populations have been reduced by 50%.
A reflection for hope
More and more people are becoming sensitive to wildlife problems.
