The Burrowing Owl
This animal became extinct in B.C. several years ago.¬† Then it was reintroduced and now is apparently starting to increase its numbers.¬† This film explains the technique for capturing the owls in the United States (where they are quite abundant) and getting them settled in suitable habitat in B.C. Note: The burrowing owl should not be confused with the spotted owl. The burrowing owl has been endangered in B.C. for many years and did actually become extinct for a while.
