  The Owl Foundation  
  The Owl Foundation is a non-profit conservation organization that operates a centre for both the rehabilitation to release status of Canadian Owl species, and the behavioural observation of permanently damaged wild owls in a breeding environment.
The founders, Katherine and Larry McKeever, began working with injured owls in 1965 and incorporated as a registered Canadian charitable organization in 1975. The Foundation is administered by eleven directors, employs a paid staff of five (the founders are voluntary staff) and is helped in many important ways by a small number of reliable volunteers.
The long term purpose of this Foundation has been to create breeding environments where permanently damaged wild owls are monitored by remotely controlled video cameras. Many aspects of relationship formation of wild owls are unknown, seldom observed and never studied the year round. The centre maintains over thirty-five such cameras, shifted among 53 complexes covering 5 acres and is building a permanent behavioural record on tape.
Progeny from our breeding pairs are raised by their wild parents in the absence of visible people, learn to pursue and catch live rodents and are able to travel our unique corridor system to leave their parents' territories at the natural time of separation. Immatures of several species are released where a parent originated at the end of summer. However, the young of migratory and northern species are maintained on live food over winter and shipped (by air) in spring to parental breeding grounds.
The Owl Foundation permanently houses some 120 damaged, wild owls of Canada's fifteen native species, as well as supporting, to releasable condition, over 100 annual owl admissions.

Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
$66,180.00 US.

The Owl Foundation has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as The Owl Foundation.

AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to The Owl Foundation. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
