The world's biggest owl is among the birds of prey being exhibited in Saltwell Park in Gateshead.
The European eagle owl is on display alongside other species including the Tiny Owl and the Barn Owl.
It is to raise funds for conservation of birds of prey, particularly barn owls which have been in decline since the 1930s.
Though numbers have begun to increase, representatives from Adventure Valley in Durham are hoping to help secure their future.
The owls will take part in flying displays and people can hold them and have a photograph taken in the park.
The money raised will also help protect the European eagle owls, which have become extinct in the UK.
