British Owl Project
The British Owl Project Has Everything British Owl At Its Heart. Owls are an indicator and umbrella species and their presence and population size is an indication of the health and balance of their ecosystem and its biodiversity. The British Owl Project offers the opportunity to be involved in Owl Conservation and species research whether you have been involved in conservation in the past or would like to start now.
We monitor and survey Owls and their habitats to increase our knowledge of their populations, health, behaviour and locations. Our surveys cover all types of areas – Urban, Suburban, Village, Farmland, etc.
We carry out surveys and install nest boxes. We carry out nest monitoring with the help of our wonderful volunteers.
Dispersal of Chicks
We arrange the ringing of chicks and maintain an ongoing record of populations and their dispersal.
We work with Landholders and other groups with habitat restoration, enlargement and the connection of larger areas of habitat through network solutions.
And There's More
Education is an important part of our work. We work with local groups, communities, educational facilities, and other interest groups to name but a few.
- We run Training Sessions for our volunteers including Nest Box installation and monitoring.
- We run Workshops, Owl Sessions, Talks and attend Events (when allowed).
Please do get in touch whether you are interested in being involved singularly or as a group. If you are a group, maybe you would like to join in with our projects, or maybe you would like us to run a workshop or session for your group. Please get in touch as we would love to hear from you.
Have You Spotted Or Heard Any Owls?
If so, we would love to hear about it for our research. Owls are an indicator and umbrella species and their presence and population size is an indication of the health and balance of their ecosystem and its biodiversity.
