Society for the
Conservation of Owls
The Society for the Conservation of Owls (‚Gesellschaft zur Erhaltung der Eulen e.V.‘: EGE) is an association of practitioners and scientists dedicated to the protection of wildlife and their habitats. Its main focus is on the protection of the thirteen European owl species. The Society for the Conservation of Owls (EGE) is a non-profit and apolitical organization.
The EGE developed from the ‚Project for the Reintroduction of the Eagle Owl‘ (‚Aktion zur Wiedereinbürgerung des Uhus‘: AzWU). The successful reintroduction of the eagle owl in Germany and other European countries has been achieved mainly through the efforts of the EGE. With the eagle owl reintegrated into the wild, the EGE works to protect all endangered European owl species.
The EGE’s logo is a blue eagle owl feather with twelve stars. The society has its headquarters in Bad Münstereifel, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
