Barn owls in Ontario are endangered right now. It was asses as endangered when the Species Act took effect in 2008. These cute looking animals cannot tolerate severe winter temperatures, and southern Ontario is the northern limit of this range.

It can be find in these places in the southern Ontario:


  • Abandoned buildings
  • Roots in barns
  • Adaptable owl nest
Some breeding sites seem to be restricted to areas with the moderating effects of the Great Lakes(within 50 kilometers of the lakes).

How Many Barn Owls Are Still Left In Ontario?

In Ontario there are up to 60 Barn Owls, 30 pairs in Ontario. Barn Owls may be extirpate(to remove/destroy totally), in our province. The Barn Owl is extirpate in Michigan and has declined in other states in the northeastern and mid western of the United States.

Here is a graph of Barn Owls since 1998- 2008 ... Oh! And if you want to read on go on this website!

What The Government Can do to Help the Barn Owls More

The Provincial Government can help the Barn Owls more by gathering more people or working with different people. They can also help by:


  • Showing or making a website on the internet
  • Adding them to newspapers
  • Telling news reporters about the issue since 2008
  • And what everyone can do by doing a speech

Perspectives

The perspective of all the levels of governments are working with a group of people who protects there habitats. Governments doesn't worry about this issue a lot, but they should to help the animals.


The 2nd perspective is the community. The community doesn't know about this issue(unless they are in program to help endangered animals) because nobody ever talks about this issue.

An Organization

An organization that is helping the Barn Owls is called Ontario. It was mentioned at the beginning of this flyer but, did I tell you that they are automatically protecting the Barn Owls? The government is working with them but again they are not helping a lot. But it's better then nothing!
