What is the Owl Box Initiative?
Through The Owl Box Initiative, GWCT conservation scientists will work with 100 farms over 40,000ha to inspire farmers and communities to work for the conservation of the iconic Barn Owl. As a top predator, the Barn Owl provides an indication of ecosystem health, and conservation measures that benefit wider farmland biodiversity. By engaging farmers, their families and wider communities in working for the Barn Owl, the project aims to connect people with farmland wildlife and promote a better understanding of wildlife friendly farming measures.
