Owl Rescue Centre


Dedicated to the protection of owls and wildlife

Spekboom Project

Everything starts out small, but has the potential to grow into something big.

The Spekboom Project was started by 8-year-old Rebecca Murray, daughter of the founders of the organisation, Brendan and Danelle Murray.  Rebecca is a passionate young conservationist who have been growing Spekboom plants for the past year, ever since she found out how it could benefit the planet. She then suggested that other people start planting them too and that the plants are sold to raise funds for the owls.

Approximately 120 Spekboom plants completely offset your personal carbon footprint.

We recommend planting Spekboom in gardens, building complexes, urban areas, corporate estates and school grounds. Spekboom should never replace other indigenous plants or be planted in natural areas where it may hinder or disturb area specific flora.
