Tracy Aviary and Young Living Bring in 70k for Owl Conservation Project

SALT LAKE CITY, November 15, 2019 — Tracy Aviary and Botanical Garden would like to thank Young Living Essential Oils for the huge success of raising over $70,000 in funds for an all new Western Owl Conservation Project. Young Living is donating a portion of each sale of the company’s “Feather The Owl” kids diffuser. These proceeds will be used for a comprehensive, multi-species approach to owl conservation work within Utah and the western United States over the next five years.


These funded projects will strategically fill data-gaps in our current understanding of owls - including their population status, occurrence, and habitat use patterns - in order to identify and implement effective conservation actions for owls in Utah and the western United States. These species include 11 of the 14 owls that can occur in Utah: Barn Owl, Flammulated Owl, Western Screech-owl, Great Horned Owl, Northern Pygmy-Owl, Burrowing Owl, Spotted Owl, Long-eared Owl, Short-eared Owl, Boreal Owl and Northern Saw-whet Owl. Many of these species are declining in population size, yet their biology and conservation threats are still poorly understood. The generosity of Young Living Essential Oils will aid Tracy Aviary and Botanical Garden and partners in supporting research necessary to guide action for the protection of Utah's owl populations and the habitats they depend on.


“We believe very strongly at Young Living that we are stewards of the earth. We believe companies must support sustainable business practices as a core corporate responsibility. Partnering with Tracy Aviary on this important owl conservation project aligns with our passion for stewardship” Jared Turner, President of Young Living, said. The “Feather the Owl” diffuser is an exclusive, custom-designed ultrasonic diffuser that functions as a humidifier, aroma diffuser, night-light, and white-noise machine all in one These popular owl themed diffusers were released earlier this year and are now temporarily out of stock, proving that both the diffuser and the great cause behind it have been a big hit in the essential oil community.

Young Living presented the check of $70,000 to Tracy Aviary at their annual fundraising event, Migration Libation, on the evening of November 14, 2019.
