Rescue Story

Bubo was found vocalizing and approaching people in Castro Valley in 1999. This type of behavior indicated that he may have been raised by humans when he was very young. He was taken to the Lindsey Wildlife Experience. Now he is one of their animal ambassadors and lives in the exhibit hall. He appears in classes, exhibit hall presentations, birthday parties, and works in school tours and outreach programs.
