Wild About Wildlife - the Barn Owl
If you came out last Friday to Tri County Wildlife Care's Wild About Wildlife Presentation, you were treated to some of our finest Wildlife Ambassadors! Our Education Animals! Here you see our Education Barn Owl!
DID YOU KNOW:
"A family of Barn Owls can consume about 1300 rats per year and 3000 rodents in a breeding season alone! It is for this reason the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stated that the barn owl is the most economically beneficial species to humans". (via The Hungry Owl Project) -What a wonderful, natural, green, form of rodent control! It's important to avoid harmful and poisonous, rodent control. Our raptors, who do a wonderful job of rodent control, can eat poisoned rodents and it ultimately results in a slow and painful death for the raptors. So lets let nature do it's thing! Mother Nature knows best!
Interested in having our Wildlife Ambassadors visit your school or organization? We'd love to see you!
-Since 2012, TCWC volunteers have made 62 school, scout, and event visits, reaching more than 6,800 people and half of them have been kids. Clearly, educating about the importance of wildlife and living in balance is important to us.
Education presentations are FREE, simply call 209-283-EAGL(3245) to schedule a session.
