Seen a shadow in the night? Heard a strange hoot from the bush? Could be a Powerful Owl.
Despite being a threatened species, Powerful Owls are a being seen and heard more often around Sydney. Despite their impressive size, little is known about the ecology of Powerful Owls, particularly those living in cities. Since 2011, the Powerful Owl Project, with the aid of citizen scientists, has collected critical data on Sydney’s Powerful Owl population. The information gained from this study is used to inform the conservation status of the Powerful Owl, and help drive management recommendations for their continued survival in urban areas.
