These two White faced owls (Ptilopsis granti) were brought to us after being under threat on a property with large dogs. While it would have been ideal for them to remain near their nest until they were ready to fledge, despite our best efforts, it was not possible to keep the owls on the original property or one nearby.
They've subsequently learnt to identify natural food sources, and once identifying SAFRINGs have been placed on them, they will be released into a suitable environment.
