Owl Rescue Centre, a registered non-profit rehabilitation facility concerned with the well- being of all owl species in Southern Africa, has come up with an ingenious use for recycled plastic that benefits birds as well as raises funds for a much needed cause.
The organisation's founders, Brendan and Danelle Murray recently decided that, moving forward, all Owl Rescue Centre conservation products, including owl houses, bat houses and bee hives would be manufactured from recycled plastic instead of wood.
Says Brendan Murray: "This year we decided to implement a new and ground-breaking approach to environmental management, giving special attention and focus to plastic waste.
"This project will extend to an ocean clean-up mission and the acquisition of a sea-going vessel is on the agenda. We aim to recycle six-hundred tons of plastic per year, making this a feasible environmental project."
