The Essex Barn owl conservation project works with landowners interested in helping the native wild Barn owl population.

The project is run almost entirely by EWT volunteers who provide advice to landowners about habitat management, assessing site suitability for hosting Barn owl nest boxes, and monitoring wild Barn Owl populations across Essex.

Those interested in supporting the Essex Barn Owl Conservation Project can do so in a number of ways:

Purchasing a Barn owl nest box (subject to site assessment)
Sponsoring a Barn owl nest box (to be erected on suitable sites)
Volunteering with the project as an advisor and monitor
Spreading awareness of the project to others

(Please note, we no longer make and supply our own nest boxes, however, we do advise on site suitability, appropriate nest box design and reputable suppliers, and advice on nest box installation)”
