Registration for CAL: BURROWING OWLS - THE CALGARY ZOO 22/23 is Closed

The burrowing owl is a unique grassland species, whose Canadian population has declined by 90% since the 1990s. The owl is listed as Endangered due to several threats that result in high juvenile mortality and low migration return rates. Through a variety of hands-on activities, we will learn about the burrowing owls' habitat, diet, and head-starting project that the Wilder Institute Calgary Zoo has devised to recover burrowing owl populations. Students will reflect on the question “how can we improve our environment for burrowing owls and ourselves?” while acting as 'conservation researchers' for a day to learn some of the conservation techniques that are involved in saving this species from extinction.
