It’s not every day that one gets the opportunity to see a royal owl up close. What’s more, this species of owl is the biggest in all of Europe. On Wednesday, the 29th of September, CIG received the presence of an enormous nocturnal male royal owl which had been recovering at the wildlife rehabilitation center “El Blanqueo” in Granada after it had suffered from an accident with a football field net. It was here where he had damaged one of his wings. Now recovered, he was shown to the entire student body by Nuria Vaqueira, a veterinarian from CREA, and she told us about the process of its recovery.
