Our mission is to reduce the need for pesticides & rodenticides by
encouraging natural predators through conservation of habitat,
nest boxes, and education.

We are proud and humbled to have received the following message from one of our primary inspirations:
The Hungry Owl Project is a much needed and very important initiative. I hope that every bird lover, every nature lover, will support it. Let us ensure that these marvelous birds, with their huge eyes and silent flight will be around to bring magic to the night long after we are gone. Their future lies in our hands.
