  • We visited the sanctuary today and wanted to add a few words of support. Let us hope that the council will be able to see how well the birds you have are cared for and will use common sense as opposed to written official 'guidelines' when it comes to rescuing any bird or animal.

  • We love this sanctuary and it should stay open. We were there today and the people who run it obviously love these birds and all the visitors I saw enjoyed it too! It should stay open!!

  • Have only been twice! Went with my wife a while ago when visiting friends in Ebbw Vale, and was so impressed we went back with the Grand-kids. You're all doing a marvellous job there, and deserve recognition for your dedicated services to our avian friends who have fallen on hard times. Prayers and good wishes are sent that you pull through this difficult time.

  • We moved from Ebbw Vale 5 years ago and when we come home now to visit family we always visit the Owl Sanctuary my children love it. The staff are lovely people and so helpful. This is one of the best things Ebbw Vale has it wouldbe a real shame to lose it.

  • I visited the sanctuary for the first time this month, amazing place, very beautiful and peaceful and the aviaries are all built in and around the trees which is lovely for the visitors and the owls I should think. The birds all looked well and happy. We met Malcolm, very friendly, he told us all about the councils plans and we were distressed by what they were planning. From what I can see the birds are very well looked after, very inquisitive and happy and most importantly much loved, and it is a shame that Malcolm's hard work is in jeopardy. We left a donation and signed the petitions. I shall definately be visiting again when I next visit Ebbw Vale and have recommended it to all my friends too. Keep up the excellent work Malcolm

  • I took my mother to the Owl Sanctuary and we were both saddened to hear that it had been closed. Blaenau Gwent council should concentrate on the people who are not taking care of animals instead of stopping the good work the sanctuary does

  • I would really hate for the Owl Sanctuary to be shut down! I have taken my sister there when she was a baby and she has loved it ever since! I was there today, with my Dad, my Brother, and my Friend and we signed the petitions! I thinks its a shame that its being shut down and the council should feel disappointed!
