Being our ‘eagles of the night’, owls are rarely seen. Our most mysterious owls are those that live in forests, and even more cryptic are those that can only thrive in old growth forests. They are becoming increasingly endangered.
Our state government is currently reviewing owl protection zones, but they are using out of date information. It looks like owls will be given just 10-20% of the minimum area they need to survive, let alone recover and thrive.
