Most of us the in U.S.A. think owls are cool. This is not necessarily the case elsewhere in the world, especially in Africa. There is also a large illegal owl trade going on in Asia. Those of in the U.S. think there's not much we can do personally to help owls, but there is! Each and every one of us can make changes in our daily lives that will have a positive impact on owls. Our goal at the International Owl Center is to get people excited about owls and then give them the tools to live more owl-friendly lives (which by no coincidence are good for the environment in general.) And we also invite people to participate in Citizen Science projects about owls, both our own and others. There is simply so much we don't know about owls, and you can be part of the discovery process.
This is how we fulfill our mission of advancing the survival of wild owl populations through education and research.
