Owl Release Sites
EcoSolutions is actively involved in a number of educational programmes. We conduct owl releases at schools and other centres of learning as they are generally perfect sites for owl habitation and at present we have around fifty schools in the greater Gauteng area involved in these projects. Since inception nearly 84 000 children have been involved in the various projects.
We have a few owl release sites at certain private residences and office parks, but in each case the individual or company has to either build an owl release site according to our exact specifications OR have us build the owl release pen for them. The reason for this is that rescued or orphaned owls in captivity and scheduled for release are very strictly controlled and we have to rehabilitate them into the wild.
The owls are tagged and monitored by the University of Cape Town and the process is strictly governed as they need to be monitored and fed in such a way that they can then become free creatures again with minimum risk inflicted on them.
