Currently supported projects

Our currently supported Conservation Project is the Wildlife Conservation Society's Blakiston's Fish Owl Project operating under its Russia Programme to ensure the long term viability of this enigmatic species.

Welcome to the IOS

The UK based International Owl Society (I.O.S) was established in 1996 as a worldwide forum for anyone with an interest in owls. It caters equally for the owl enthusiast, who may wish to support Owl conservation work through the Society’s conservation projects, as well as owl keepers & breeders.As such membership is open equally to all Owl enthusiasts, keepers and breeders as well as the scientific and zoological communities.

You do not need to be an owl-keeper to join all that we ask is that you share our passion for these remarkable birds.

Our members include leading owl-keepers and breeders so expert and friendly advice on all aspects of owl-keeping and husbandry is readily available.
