Talons 'Owltimate' Encounters CIC
TALONS OWLTIMATE ENCOUNTERS CIC is a zoo licensed, animal encounter, non profit community interest company based in Cornwall. We pride ourselves on providing entertaining and educational encounters for schools and other academic institutions, fun ‘meet and greet’ encounters for events, parks, parties, wedding, clubs and groups, and we specialise in therapeutic encounters for the more vulnerable members of our society i.e. the elderly, special needs and learning disabilities.
We travel throughout Cornwall and South Devon providing our reputable animal encounters to all ages and abilities. Our animal encounters and parties allow everyone to meet our wonderful birds and animals, as we bring the zoo to you! We can visit just about any type of establishment and we also have the Reptile & Raptor Roadshow that travels around shows, fetes, rallies and other events in Cornwall and South Devon during the summer months.
Talons is zoo licensed, which means that we are regularly inspected to ensure the highest standards of care and welfare for our animals. We also have to abide by stringent health and safety regulations and provide high standards of educational resources. Every animal that is used for encounters and experiences has been specifically chosen for its temperament and suitability. Several have been hand reared from birth but there are also rescues and re-homes – all are handled regularly to ensure they’re as tame and as friendly as they can be.
