Your Host Organisation
The Barn Owl Foundation (BOF), Hungary is a Non Governmental Organisation established in 1997. The aim of the organisation is to embrace a wide spectrum of nature conservation and related social matters. Apart from the protection of endangered species and their habitats the Foundation is dedicated to tackling sectoral issues such as education, communication and employability challenges in the environmental sector.
The BOF operates in the rural countryside across Hungary. It has 2 members of staff and has a pool of around 40 volunteers from which to draw solid scientific and/or analytical expertise and/or web site experience. One of the strengths of the Foundation is its ability to manage projects in an agile and proactive way. The organisation works closely with National Parks, local authorities, HEIs and other NGO’s both in Hungary and Europe. The rich network provides a robust background to find solutions and answers to various questions. This makes it possible to form teams that can provide specific input into different projects as required.
