About Our Auction

The Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Program is running its third-annual online auction to raise money for the care of the resident spotted owls. We expect our online auction to be our biggest fundraising opportunity of the year and are excited to celebrate the first-ever release of captive bred northern spotted owls into the wild in BC!

About Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Program

With fewer than six individuals left in the wild in British Columbia, northern spotted owls are one of Canada’s most endangered species. Threats to the survival of the species include the loss and fragmentation of their old-growth forest habitat, and competition with the non-native barred owl.

Founded in 2007, the NSOBP is part of the non-profit British Columbia Conservation Foundation, and is located in Langley, BC on the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen First Nation.

As the only conservation breeding program for this species in the world, the mission of the NSOBP is to restore the population through conservation breeding and release into protected old-growth forest habitat designated by the Province of BC. The first-ever release of NSOBP-bred northern spotted owls was accomplished in August 2022, when three spotted owls were released into protected habitat in the Fraser Valley.
