In the natural Park “Ergaki” in the South of Krasnoyarsk region have built shelters to attract owls to nest. This was reported on the website of the press service of the government of Krasnoyarsk region.
As the head of the Park Director Igor gräzin, feathered predators need artificial nesting because they don’t build their own shelter on their own, and occupy an existing niche. Due to changes of the environment they do not have enough seats.
Gryazin added that previously, these birds are considered a serious threat to agriculture, forestry and hunting, and this greatly affected their population — they now need attention. According to him, despite the change in the situation, should at least partially compensate for damage to the environment, to prevent the reduction and disappearance of populations of animals and birds.

Park workers will soon make a new owl houses. They hope not only to provide the birds shelter, but also to collect data about the presence on the territory of the “Ergaki” specific types of raptors.
