We receive calls from members of the public about owls in their ceilings, abandoned buildings, on sides of the road, the SPCAS and the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital (JWVH). The work we do is pro-Bono and we plead you to help us to uplift our owl conservation efforts. To support us, please click HERE to see the different methods you can use to donate. The donations cover fuel when responding to the calls, building the enclosure, and food costs during the 21 day period that the owls are being cared for by the school children.

This project costs R7500.00 per month and your valued support makes this possible.

MIDDLEBURG, MPUMALANGA - Epani Primary School – Owlproject.org was asked to give a talk to school children in Middleburg in collaboration with the Endangered Wildlife Trust Owl Project. On the day the kids learnt about the different owl calls and one of the children was awarded a Junior Scientist Kit after knowing the number of rats a family of Barn Owls (Tyto alba) can eat in a year.
This is what Shaun Leving from Anglo American had to say about our visit to the school –

What you did for us a while back at the Epani School was and still is the best thing that happened at that school in a very long time. We want more!! 

We returned to Middleburg and visited Curro Bankenveld Independent School to put up owl boxes and dissect more owl pellets – Everything was made possible with the support of Shaun Levings who individually sponsored the projects for both schools.
