Since 2016, learners from five different Alexandra Township schools have created over 2000 pieces of owl art using the off-cuts from the owl box manufacturing process.

The owl art was displayed at the Knysna Timber Festival in September 2017 and annually at Birdlife SA’s African Bird Fair at Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens since 2016. In 2017, the learners created owl cut-outs and some of the art pieces are amazingly being displayed at the International Owl Centre in Minnesota, USA. In 2018, the children created colourful owl masks and some of those are now in Austria.

This year, the children want to create 3D owl puzzles. The owl puzzle has 34 pieces and it is 1 meter tall and costs R500.00 to create. The puzzles will be coloured in by children from 5 different schools in Alexandra Township. The children aim to have 50 3D units to showcase at Birdlife SA’s Bird fair on the 14-15 September 2019 at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens and the Alex Owl Day in November 2019 for the Eco-school competitions.

We would like to place your name on the sponsored unit in recognition of your support for the 2019 Owl Art Project.

Your support will enable us to continue to create owl friendly children who go on to be owl friendly adults, living within an owl friendly environment.
