Nesting aid construction and installation for native owls

Our owls also suffer from the decline in natural nesting possibilities. By offering nesting aids we create alternatives that are used by tawny owls and barn owls - occasionally even kestrels move in.


With the help of financial support

since 2013 employees of the Nature Conservation Zoo Görlitz 

have been hanging up many new incubators in the district of Görlitz, near Bautzen and in the district of Spree-Neiße. Starting in March 2014 new nesting aids were started to put up in the area around Daubitz.


Many native owl species are endangered in Germany.

The short-eared owl for example is even threatened with extinction in many areas.

This is primarily caused by the loss of habitat and the decline in prey. The birds often no longer find suitable breeding areas. Global warming also threatens many owl species and their habitats.
