Owl Friendly Margaret River Region is a volunteer project to tackle an insidious problem – poisoning of nocturnal birdlife and other fauna by rodenticides.

The campaign is a project of the Margaret River Region Rodenticide Action Group led by former Nature Conservation chairman Boyd Wykes and his wife Karen Majer, chair of Transition Margaret River.

The project aims to educate the community about the importance of choosing wildlife-friendly methods of controlling rats and mice. An important way that our community members can play their role in making our region a safe haven.

"We know that our residents and businesses would be horrified to find out that the poisons many are using to control rats and mice are also killing a wide range of wildlife, including owls that are our natural allies in controlling these pests." Dr Wykes said.

To assist in making the campaign a success, our team provided funding for the build of the campaign website, a pivotal platform to allow the sharing of information and stories as well as helping to promote the campaign messages to our local community.

Community Bank Director Jennifer Gherardi said "the campaign presented a strong connection to our focus around supporting local environment and sustainability initiatives".

"Our team have really enjoyed being a part of driving the campaign message to our local community members as well as our business community".
