Give a Hoot for Burrowing Owls

Thanks for visiting the Burrowing Owls fundraising shop!

Southeast Florida is very developed. Burrowing owls need wide open spaces with native groundcovers. Habitat loss and degradation is the reason they are threatened. In a developed landscape, more than 80% of natural burrows flood or collapse under the weight of commercial mowers.

Safe burrows save owls. Some of the only green spaces left are schools, where 40% of our owls live. South Florida Audubon Society's Project Perch works with students and builds artificial burrows with safe nesting chambers, adds fencing around natural burrows and installs educational signs; while simultaneously creating outdoor classrooms that teach students environmental stewardship and protects owls in the future. Our schools learn to appreciate and protect their owls, they become Owl Guardians.

Each burrow cost about $30 and every educational sign costs $70. Each school adds 1-4 burrows and schools need funding to do their projects. There are 300 schools in Broward County and more than 75 of them have owls. SFAS's Project Perch also works on joint projects with schools and Cities at local parks.

You'll find unique merchandise with the burrowing owls watercolor art of Claudia Hafner on t-shirts, sweatshirts, journals, calendars and more. 50% of proceeds (excluding cost of product) will be donated to this cause and 50% will go to the artist. More information about Project Perch
