Last summer two juvenile specimens of European Scops Owl (Otus scops) arrived at Oasys MiniHollywood, which due to the high temperatures were dehydrated and disoriented.
After several months in which the park’s veterinary team focused on the recovery and acclimatization of these new tenants, in addition to rehabilitation and training to learn to hunt and be independent, last week and in collaboration with the Green Committee of Senator Hotels & Resorts, were released at the Finca del Olivar Ecológico de Rafael Alonso, in the vicinity of the Tabernas Desert.
In this farm with a Mediterranean landscape full of ecological olive trees and low scrub, the little scops owls will be able to survive and hunt the insects and small rodents they feed on.
Both Oasys MiniHollywood and the Rafael Alonso farm seek to promote education and awareness of the climate change crisis we are facing, betting on organic farming and respecting the environment and the land, without using chemical products.
From Oasys MiniHollywood with the recovery and release of these two specimens of scops owl, we want to emphasize the enormous work of Conservation of Nature and the Environment that we carry out, since today more than a million animal and plant species are threatened, so the work of the Zoos is of vital importance for the protection of species in danger of extinction.
