Powerful by name, and powerful by nature – the Powerful Owl Ninox strenua is Australia’s largest owl with an impressive wingspan of 135cm. It occurs from eastern and south-eastern Australia mostly in large continuous forest. Despite being classified as threatened in all Australian states across its range, Powerful Owls can survive within cities.

The Powerful Owl project is looking for volunteers in Sydneyto monitor owls in the suburbs. Click here for more details on the Powerful Owl and how to get involved in this amazing citizen science project. Email email@example.com for more details on how to get involved.
