Hungry Owl Project

About the Project

The mission of the Hungry Owl Project is to reduce the need for harmful pesticides and rodenticides by encouraging natural predators. Hungry Owl Project is a program of WildCare, and we help owls by providing nesting boxes, doing research and monitoring of local owl populations, maintaining of owl boxes, and educating the public about nontoxic and sustainable pest management practices.

Did you know that a single family of Barn Owls can eat around 3,400 rodents each year? If the Barn Owl parents have more than one clutch of baby owlets, that number can even double! Barn Owls really are amazing at controlling rodents.
