Owl Box Project

Owl Box Project

The Owl Box Project was started in 2013 as part of urban raptor research and conservation. All data collected goes to research on urban owl species. It allows for community involvement as part of

environmentally friendly pest control programs and supports the breeding efforts of

resident urban owl populations. Education presentations are done for schools, enviro-clubs and other interested groups to encourage a better understanding of owls and the important role they play in the environment. The project works in close collaboration with rehabilitation centers, supplying owl boxes for displaced owl families, as well as orphans ready to be released into safe, new environments. Where possible, landowners who are choosing poison free solutions to rodent problems, are encouraged to make use of owls and owl boxes as an option.
