Celebrating International Owl Day by giving to the community

Thokoza, Johannesburg


Kathehong is one of the townships that has a healthy owl population due to the fact that their prey item - rodents - is readily available.

Miriam who is a a qualified animal training administrator from the NSPCA contacted owlproject.org.  She noticed that a Spotted Eagle Owl (Bubo africanus) loves roosting in her property. Mirriam used to have a problem with rats eating wires inside the ceiling and car and also making holes in her door. However, the rat problem started to subside when she noticed there is an owl roosting in her home. We went to Miriam's home to install a Spotted Eagle Owl Box to provide an alternative roosting site to try and keep the owl in the area.
