THE NEW RECOVERY IMPLEMENTATION PLAN

The BC Recovery Goal is to establish viable populations of at least ten pairs at four separate locations.

The recovery approach for Burrowing Owls in British Columbia focuses on the production of young owls from a captive breeding stock and their release as yearlings into suitable habitat where artificial burrows have been installed.

The success of the program requires three coordinated efforts:

  • captive breeding programs
  • releases and associated activities including research and monitoring
  • stewardship/education.

Identify important habitat features for nesting and foraging for owls

Work with landowners concerning the habitat trends that may influence or affect Burrowing Owls
