Northern Spotted Owl Captive Breeding Program
This project will provide funding to the Northern Spotted Owl Captive Breeding Program. The program’s goal is to produce captive-born Northern Spotted Owls for release into suitable habitat within the Bridge-Seton Watershed to recover the local population to a minimum of 20 individuals. This owl is one of Canada’s most endangered bird species, and its entire Canadian range occurs in southwestern BC. Fewer than 30 individuals remain in Canada, with more than half residing in captivity at the breeding facility in BC.
