Join Humane Indiana Wildlife as we take an in-depth look at the owl species of Indiana. From tiny saw-whet owls to our largest owl species, the Great Horned Owl, these incredible predators sit atop the food chain and maintain the wild world around them. Meet our education ambassador Drew Riley and a new Eastern Screech Owl ambassador as well! Hear their stories and the stories of other individual owls that have come through the doors of Humane Indiana Wildlife. As a special treat join us this month to experience a release of one of our rehabilitation patients who are ready to get back to their life in the wild.
