Luna & Hera- Barn Owl Breeders
Hera came to us from Arizona with a permanent wing injury which made her non-releasable. She has hatched and raised dozens of owlets that have been released through our re-introduction program and many others have been sent to other wildlife centers for education or breeding programs. Captive breeding programs along with habitat conservation are vital to maintaining sustainable populations of barn owls.

Luna was hatched at Hawk Creek. A favorite in our education programs, he enchants audiences with his delicate beauty. Barn Owls have been associated with the supernatural, witchcraft, omens, and even death. Many ghost stories are believed to have originated from encounters with them. With their light undersides, dark eyes, screams, and “glowing” properties, it can be enough to frighten anyone! His role here is to dispel these myths through education. He joined our Conservation Breeding Program in 2021.
