The Canadian Peregrine Foundation

Owl Section Home Page

Since 2000, the Canadian Peregrine Foundation's mandate has been expanded to address the needs of threatened and endangered raptors of all kinds.  In 2001 the first efforts were made toward issues of owl conservation.  This section of the website will be growing over time as we become more involved with owls, and we welcome your comments and suggestions.

Over time, we plan to provide information on all of North America's owls, including a full description of each species, accompanied by photos and/or drawings.  We would greatly appreciate any contributions to this section - email us.
