Owlproject.org was founded almost 20 years ago. Its aim is to introduce young black South African children to the wonderful world of owls, their beauty as well as their enormous potential as partners in the control and management of rats. Rats are a daily scourge within the rodent infested and impoverished communities in which many young South Africans live. In order to achieve this, it is essential to demystify the negative stigma surrounding owls in Southern Africa.
