345 | Lack of owl nests

CONSERVATION


BirdsConTour highlights the need for adequate owl nests country wide. 

Before

After

During a tour, organized by Cham√§leon Reisen and Pack Safari and led by BirdsConTour,  an owl nest, constructed out of a scrap dog hut, was erected on top of a water reservoir tower on Omandumba Guestfarm.

Fish River Canyon

Nearby the worlds second largest canyon, the Fish River Canyon, BirdsConTour constructed a burrow for ground nesting owls, such as the Spotted Eagle-Owl, out of old fence wire rolls and rocks.


It is of utmost importance to attract owls to human settlements in order to keep snake populations at bay (BirdsConTour reports in article 332).
