Wildlife Educator & Owl Specialist

Hello I’m Ian McGuire, a freelance wildlife educator, British owl specialist, photographer and filmmaker based in Yate, South Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom.

For nearly 20 years I have presented in excess of 1000 talks and community events to interest groups, wildlife charities, primary schools and the wider public and have appeared on national television a number of times. My tame owls have appeared in an advert, a movie with Hollywood stars and we’ve featured in numerous press articles over the years. I have  worked as a wildlife consultant and filmmaker for wildlife nest box manufacturer Wildlife World and I also founded the Hawk and Owl Trust South Gloucestershire Group in 2002 before cutting my ties with the Trust in 2006 to launch Wild Owl and work in a professional capacity as an independent speaker and wildlife educator.

In recognition of my educational work I was highly commended as a Local Conservation Educator in the Bristol Zoo Walk of Fame Awards.

I can be booked for a range of services where schools and groups can learn about owls and other wildlife.

Thanks for visiting my website and I hope you enjoy the content.
