Injured owls released in Oliva

0

THE DEPARTMENT of Environment in Oliva was proud to confirm the release of two tawny owls earlier this week in the Santa Anna mountainous area.

The owls were found injured in the street by a resident of Oliva in February.
Over the past three months, they have been nursed back to health at the Protected Birds Recovery Centre ‘La Granja’.

Attending the release was Councillor for Environment, Imma Ibiza, technicians of the municipality and around 20 students from the CEIP Santa Anna d’Oliva primary school.

The Councillor for Environment explained to the children the importance of owls in the local ecosystem as they ‘help to control rodent rates in the municipality.’

Anyone who finds a protected bird such as an owl should contact 112 or the local police.
