Sarah HigginsIn April of this year, Sarah Higgins of the Naivasha Owl Centre passed on, and the collective sadness of those who knew her and/or her work was overwhelming. I happen to have met her some years back at her home in Naivasha. Her warm smile made me feel at home in her farm on South Lake Road. I followed her work with great interest thereafter. They say she’s up there flying with the eagles… but I still feel horrible inside.

Sarah’s dedication to rescuing hapless birds of prey is legendary. She fixed and released many many owls and eagles and other less glamorous things of the wild, and let them fly or walk or run into the wild to have a second go at their natural life. And those that were too broken she fixed and gave a home for the remaining bit of their lives. Some bred and their offspring were released to replenish the wild. And now she’s gone herself… to fly with her eagles.

On June 17 the Owl Centre shall hold a memorial for Sarah starting at 2pm EAT. The service, to be held at her home on South Lake Road, will be a celebration of a great friend, colleague and icon of raptor conservation. And all are invited.

You want to attend this… so go to the centre’s Facebook page and like it for updates.
