Texas State Aquarium Returns Great Horned Owls to Wild
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – On Tuesday, August 27, at 6:30 p.m., the Texas State Aquarium will be releasing two rehabilitated Great horned owls back into the wild. The juvenile owls were found orphaned at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds in Robstown, and were brought to the Aquarium’s Second Chances Wildlife Rehabilitation Program in April.
The rehabilitated owls will be returned to a wooded area near the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds, as it is always best to return animals to their original habitat. “It was great to work with, and we are grateful to, the Texas State Aquarium in helping save the horned owls. The horned owls have become over the years a wonderful fixture of the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds,” Global Spectrum’s General Manager for the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds, Jason Green
