In recent years I have specialised in teaching children about wild owls and how to help them and now have an increasing demand for my services in primary schools all over the South West.

I have enviable access to thousands of my own owl photographs and hours of High Definition video that is exclusive to me - this makes my presentations extremely colourful and fascinating and is a very strong element of my visits - the WOW factor. I am confident that there are few people in my field that offer the powerful combination of knowledge, personality and multimedia that I use, particularly in schools.

I have appeared on national television on a number of occasions both as a guest and guest presenter and regularly appear on the radio to talk about owls, as well as the local press. Media coverage has included

I am fully insured and CRB Checked for all my Wild Owl work and provide risk assessment paperwork where required..


Hello, and thank you for visiting my web site www.wildowl.co.uk. My name is Ian McGuire and I am a freelance wildlife conservationist with a particular specialisation in owls. I am based in Yate, South Gloucestershire, which is in North Bristol.

Through my school visits and community work I teach children and the wider public about wild British owls, how amazing they are and things we can do to help them. I also give advice about wildlife gardening and ways we can help to create and conserve wildlife habitats. In 2013 I was ‘Highly Commended’ by Bristol Zoo as a Local Conservation Educator.

Leaving a management career in 2006 to form Wild Owl, I have given over 1000 talks to a wide variety of groups, clubs and schools all over the region and have established a reputation in wildlife circles as a knowledgeable and dedicated bird of prey conservationist who works hard to raise public awareness about these amazing birds and other wildlife.
