"There are TWO major determinants of community safety. One is how many neighbours we know by name. The other is how often we are present and associated in public - outside our houses. Police activity is a minor protection compared to these two community actions.

Owl Rescue Project The PNRA, in partnership with the
for Rat Control
The PNRA has announced a partnership with The Owl Rescue Centre.
We encourage all our residents to use one of two environmentally-friendly methods of controlling rats and mice:
1. Using humane Rat Traps to trap live rats which the Owl Rescue Centre will collect free of charge -
The cost of supply and installation is R700 per rat trap. The rats must be given a source of food and water.
The Centre is desperate for rats due to the large number of rescue owls that they have homed.
2. Installing an Owl Box in a tree in your garden -
The cost of the supply and installation is R900.
Owls are NOT supplied with the Owl Box. The box encourages them to move into the area, especially where there is a rat population to provide a source of food. The only owl that will be attracted to an Owl Box in our area is the Spotted Eagle Owl, and your box should ideally be up by at least early June in order to attract owls for the next breeding season. Chances of
an owl moving in will be higher if your property is well-treed.
