 Hi Netters, 
       Did anyone see the piece on Channel 2, 7:30 Report, 17/8/98 where
John Young is working with cane growers to erect Owl nesting hollows on
their cane farms?
       The growers used rat poison to clear out the rats and this was
killing the raptors and owls. So John had the hollows erected and stands for
the owls to use in the fields as hunting perches.
       Good news is the owls have gone from 150 pair to 300 pair and the
rats are in decline.
       Thankyou John Young.

All the Best
