Owl Rescue Centre

Dedicated to the protection of owl species in South Africa

About our cause

Owl Rescue Centre is a registered Non-profit company and permitted rehabilitation facility concerned with the well-being of all owl species in Southern Africa.

Owl Rescue Centre is dedicated to protect owls, rescue owls that are in danger and rehabilitate and care for owls that have been injured, are sick, poisoned or orphaned and then release them back into their natural environment using specifically researched release methods.

Owl Rescue Centre is involved in several conservation projects to decrease the high mortality rate of owl species.

Owl Rescue Centre was founded by Brendan Murray following a lifelong interest and passion for birds of prey. Brendan spent most of his young life observing and studying birds. He came to the realization a few years ago that owls specifically need help to protect them from becoming endangered, and so Owl Rescue Centre was born.  

His wife, Danelle Murray, became involved in the cause shortly after to support him in his purpose.  They now work as a team, along with a few committed staff and volunteers to achieve a goal in owl conservation.


Owl Rescue Centre’s vision is that through increased understanding of the owl's true character, the fears and misgivings that often surround peoples' perceptions of owls will be replaced by tolerance and respect for these unique birds.

“We follow a philosophy of minimal human interference to nature’s natural means. We nurture owls when they need us, but we allow them to stay wild and return to their natural habitat when they no longer require our assistance.”
