Powerful Owl Project

Australia's largest owl, the Powerful Owl has a wingspan of up to 140 cm. In suburban Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, they're usually seen round remnant bushland, where they face issues including lack of nesting sites and collisions with cars and windows. We're securing a future for Powerful Owl

It’s hard to survive in the suburbs. Powerful Owls need ancient trees to nest in, and they roost during the day among dense leaves, but these trees are in short supply. Although they’re predators, Powerful Owls can be poisoned by rat bait.
