Our organisation do not endeavour for big base, expressive developing and it's maintenance does not require big costs, we only want to perform and keep our activity on the protection of owl species in our region.


   At the forming the "Nimfea" Nature Conservation Association in 1994, those initiations get to the foreground, which aim was the solving of a given nature- or environment protection related tasks. The Owl Protection Group formed that time, in 04. December 1994, which is the workgroup of the "Nimfea" Nature Conservation Association.

    This organisation has got the smallest membership and the smallest estimate among the member organisations, as we do not endeavoured for big mass base, and big estimate, the main aim rather is that the money from the supporters and from competitions get to field work. 30% of the estimate get to researches, population surveying, 50% for building and placing artificial nests (practical nature protection), 15% for education and the remainder for operation costs.

    These activities were supported by the Ministry of Environment Protection, the Soros Foundation and the Pro Renovanda Cultura Hungariae Foundation and the Independent Ecological Center. We greet them their kind help, the confidence and now we have to ask for supporting with this request, to be able to continue our programs.

    Owls generally fall out of the viewpoint of the Hungarian nature conservation, but except some species, a rarefy order in any cases, so they are worthy of paying attention. The breeding of the short-eared owl (Asio flammeus) fall victim of the agricultural works, and that species only can be saved by active conservation work on the field. The little owl (Athene noctua), breeds in sheep-folds and granaries, can be the victim of ignorance. People usually make the breeding of them impossible, mainly with disturbance. The barn owls (Tyto alba) breed in towers, but lately the church towers get closed because of the doves, so the owls can not move into the towers. We wanted to survey and increase the breeding population of the Hungarian owl species. Specially considering the owl species breeding in the Great Hungarian Plain, like the long-eared owl (Asio otus), short-eared owl (Asio flammeus), little owl (Athene noctua), barn owl (Tyto alba), and the tawny owl (Strix aluco).
