Abstract: We present general aspects of a captive-breeding and release program developed for the burrowing owl (Speotyto cunicularia) in British Columbia. The program consists of 4 components that are essential for a successful reintroduction effort: breeding facilities; community involvement; private land stewardship; and field monitoring. Breeding facilities have become more finely tuned over time, and juvenile production is only limited by the space available at the facilities. The program has a strong community-based approach, which contributes to public awareness regarding the complexity and implications of endangered species recovery projects. This is achieved through education programs that emphasize the importance of managing the limited provincial grasslands through effective stewardship and hands-on involvement by the community. Field results indicate that 1-year-old captivebred owls are capable of: 1) raising broods once released; 2) overwintering at or near release sites; 3) migrating south in winter...
