After another month of constant checking on our three preserves (we released a few more owls onto Daley Ranch Preserve later), our three new owl colonies have been deemed successful permanent colonies by our Zoo mentors! This is, as mentioned in the previous post, one huge leap for the conservation of this species! Hopefully this technique will be able to save even more owls in the future, and improved upon to be even more effective!
Today we finally got together to celebrate our successes and did research on more causes to add to the burrowing owl conservation theme! We gathered more resources and research about the burrowing owl, consulted family and friends, and searched the internet and the library for extra information that may have been overlooked the first time.
