Rehabbed Owls Go Back Into the Wild

Great Plains Zoo Raptor Rehabilitation Program
Great Plains Zoo

The Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum of Natural History released a Great Horned Owl and an Eastern Screech Owl Tuesday morning.

Zoo President and CEO Elizabeth Whealey says the owls, part of the Raptor Rehabilitation Program, were released at Blood Run Nature Area near Rowena.

Releasing birds back into the wild isn’t new.

In fact, Whealey says they’ve rehabilitated and healed scores of birds over the years.

Some birds have been injured so severely that they are never able to fly again, but instead they become teaching ambassadors in educational programs for the Great Plains Zoo or other zoos.
