Protecting Florida's Burrowing Owls - Project Perch

In the heart of Broward County, a unique conservation effort is making waves—or should we say, “hoots”? Introducing Project Perch, a vital initiative spearheaded in 2008 by avian biologist Kelly Heffernan and the South Florida Audubon Society

Our Mission: Project Perch is dedicated to safeguarding the charming and crucial Florida burrowing owls. These owls not only face threats from habitat loss but also from rapid urban development. Our mission is to ensure their protection and to nurture their populations across Florida.
