Peter Frost-Pennington who runs Muncaster Castle says there will always be a home for owls on their site.
But he says they have been forced to review the way the owl centre is run by the World Owl Trust due to a weak economy.
"We are committed to the conservation work that the centre does, as well as the wider conservation work we undertake at Muncaster.
"The last few years have been difficult for Muncaster, like many other tourist attractions, due to the weak economy and we need to make sure that every part of the attraction is operating effectively.
"As part of this we are reviewing the way the owl centre is run. That is what we have said we would like to discuss with the World Owl Trust, which currently runs the centre, and other organisations."
He added their aim is to continue having an owl centre at Muncaster that works in the best interest of the owls and visitors.
