As one of the world's largest and most powerful owls, the Cape Eagle Owl (Bubo capensis) plays an essential role as a top predator. If the species were to disappear, the entire ecosystem would be in jeopardy. These regal birds of prey hunt from roadside roosts such as telephone poles and fence posts - many are killed by vehicles. We provide more than 120 perches in our vineyards to combat this, while they control rodents and maintain a balanced population of smaller predators.
