Protect, Breed, Rescue
At The Heart of the Nature Reserve
During key months teams such as the GOHNS Raptor unit embark on the rescue and rehabilitation of various birds of prey and passerines who may become injured during their migratory journeys. Whilst also being at the forefront of reintroducing extinct or endangered animals like the recent success of a growing Barbary Partridge population.
Day to day operations for the health and safety of our Barbary Macaque packs or restorative works on existing ancient and colonial fortifications feature prominently in the Government of Gibraltar’s agenda and its continuous efforts to protect our cultural heritage.
An ever-evolving research program helps to find new ways to aid the local and migratory species in their survival and in turn, their continued representation on the rock with residential experts or those dedicated to management of our flora and fauna always at the forefront of decisions made.

The recent inauguration of the Tovey Cottage Natural History Field Centre speaks to an ever-growing desire to educate visitors and locals on Gibraltar as a biodiversity paradise, by offering further resources to aid in a variety of conservation works.
The centre has now become Gibraltar’s first seedbank, with the aim of growing populations of plants that are in danger of disappearing altogether – such as the Gibraltar Campion.
It also houses various incubators to help with the hatching of eggs for such species as the Barbary Partridge.
