Most people were unaware of owls' importance to agriculture which is directly related to their livelihood. Owl conservation projects funded by Rufford Small Grants have been successfully conducted in many areas of Nepal. Our conservation projects so far were focused and conducted at a grassroot level, involving local people and representatives, so the involvement of the national government in these events was minimal.
The proposed project aims to make five-year ' National Owl Conservation Action Plan’ in collaboration with Government of Nepal to effectively implement conservation actions at a national level. The approval process of the action plan must be through the government for its ownership. The document will highlight threats to the species while focusing on the specific conservation initiatives for different owl species. Including this important document, national conservation workshop with conservation materials are also targeted.
