Oasys MiniHollywood, in collaboration with the Senator Hotels & Resorts Green Committee, has released a little owl (Athene noctua) for reintroduction into its habitat.
The liberation has taken place in the Finca de Olivar Ecológico Rafael Alonso, in the vicinity of the Tabernas Desert. This Mediterranean landscape, with its olive trees and bushes, is the perfect habitat for the little owl to survive and reproduce.
In this farm, the little owl will be able to perch in the olive trees to observe and hunt rodents and insects for food.
The Finca de Olivar Ecológico Rafael Alonso is committed to organic agriculture and obtains its products respecting the environment and the earth, without using chemical products and using the pulp of olives as food for sheep and goats and for the production of compost. In addition, 100% of the energy used in the olive grove is of photovoltaic origin and therefore renewable.
United for Biodiversity
With the release of the owl, at Oasys MiniHollywood we want to make clear the importance of reconnecting with nature. Thus, this small action has been carried out within the framework of the United for Biodiversity campaign launched by the European Commission.
The Iberian Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AIZA), of which Oasys MiniHollywood is a member, is a sponsor of this initiative that seeks to promote awareness of the crisis facing our planet, its wildlife and its flora. Thus, it makes a call to all zoos, national parks, aquariums, botanical gardens, science and natural history museums and research centers, to join forces and speak out for biodiversity. Now more than ever, we must support the important work of Conservation for Nature and the Environment carried out by all zoos in the world.
The campaign was presented within the framework of the World Summit on Biodiversity organized by the United Nations on September 30.
The world leaders present at this summit recalled that more than one million animal and plant species are threatened in the world. They also showed their commitment to reach a new agreement for the protection of biodiversity in 2021.
