GAUNTLET CONSERVATION TRUST
UK registered charity, Number 1160179
We are a Cheshire based charity dedicated to the welfare and conservation of birds of prey. Building on the work of Gauntlet Birds of Prey in Knutsford, our objectives are to promote the conservation and protection of birds of prey and their habitats both in the UK and Worldwide and to advance the education of the public regarding all aspects of birds of prey, particularly the role they play in the ecological balance of the environment.
Since 1996 Gauntlet has been educating individuals of all ages the importance of birds of prey and the conservation of them. Gauntlet's goal is to try and reach people from all walks of life, all ages and all degrees of learning abilities to convey the message that animals are a vital part of our world and without education, protection and conservation life simply cannot continue.
The Trust has been formed to continue, and build, on the work carried out by Gauntlet Birds of Prey. On formation the Trust has three trustees from various backgrounds, but all with a lifelong interest in wildlife conservation.
