BIBY want to locate all the breeding pairs of Powerful Owls in the greater Sydney region, from Newcastle in the north to Kiama in the south and west to the Blue Mountains. We will be identifying where their nest locations are and recording the outcome of each nesting attempt at the end of the breeding season. We will do this by working with the community.
This information will identify the critical roosting and breeding requirements of the owls and the locations of important areas requiring protection. In addition, the project will also focus on the development of education materials with partners such as Taronga Zoo and engage various land managers to workshop management measures to help in the conservation of Powerful Owls and their habitat.
