Powerful Owls in the City – Current Research and Where To Next

20 July 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


With the sponsorship of Lane Cove Council, BirdLife Australia’s Powerful Owl Project invites you all to a short information session.

With our owls already feeling the love this season the Powerful Owl Project would like to share some of that love with you, our most valued citizen scientists and lovers of nature. Please come along to this talks session and hear about:

  • A recap of the Cromer Nest Box Project – John Trathen

  • The results of the last year’s work looking at nest boxes for owls and microclimates of known owl hollows

  • A run down on how effective cut in hollows are for birds – Reannan Honey

  • A whirlwind tour of raptor rehabilitation overseas and the Churchill Fellowship journey – Peggy McDonald

  • One of our own POP vol.s Michael talking about pest control and effects on wildlife in Western Sydney

  • Fighting for connectivity and the importance of urban green space- Jacqui Marlow

We also hope to include some talks by two owl researchers working on Masked and Barking owls in semi-rural landscapes (speakers TBC) and a run down on what’s happening for the Powerful Owl Project in Brisbane.

There is so much to learn about owls. Please come join us if you can and together we can learn about how to actively conserve our magnificent threatened owls.
