Where do the new inhabitants come from?
The number of young Ural owls necessary for the reintroduction is considerable. Therefore, a core element of the project is raising chicks in human custody. Our current breeding network consists of 23 breeding pairs. They are under care of various zoos and breeding stations in Austria and abroad. For instance, some of these pairs can be seen at Vienna Zoo Schönbrunn, at Salzburg Zoo, at the Animal Park Herberstein or at the Alpine Zoo Innsbruck.
