The Kenya Bird of Prey Trust was established in 2014 by Simon Thomsett, the country's leading raptor expert and falconer along with Shiv Kapila, a biologist and photographer who manages the Kilimandege Sanctuary in Naivasha and the late Sarah Higgins.

The Trust operates from two bases, The Kilimandege Raptor Centre in Naivasha where they receive the majority of the injured birds and The Soysambu Raptor Camp in Soysambu Conservancy, where the bulk of the birds are rehabilitated. 

The Trust takes in injured or sick birds, mainly birds of prey and owls but any bird can find help here. They are repaired and treated, where possible, and then released back into the wild.

At present they employ three staff Mwanzia, Mwapa and Mutua who help look after 40 or so birds. This operation is entirely self funded. Donations are hugely welcome to help cover the cost of medication, medical supplies, food, transport and our education and research programs.
