The BirdLife South Africa Owl Awards ceremony originated from our need to acknowledge the companies and individuals who donate their time and money to the organisation that make it possible to continue all our conservation programmes and projects. The first Owl Award ceremony took place in 1999.

BirdLife South Africa is making an enormous contribution to the conservation of our country's birds and their habitats. These contributions are achieved through the collaborative efforts of BirdLife South Africa's staff, volunteers, members and donors. During BirdLife South Africa's annual Owl Award function, the contribution of some of the people and companies who are helping "give conservation wings" are acknowledged through the presentation of trophies and certificates.

BirdLife South Africa hosted the annual Owl Awards on 20 July at Isdell House. We would like to congratulate the award recipients, who were all very deserving of an award for their outstanding contributions to our country’s birds and their habitats.
