Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife raised thousands of dollars to protect the city’s threatened species. More than 4,600 people attended the 18th Annual Burrowing Owl Festival at Rotary Park.

The event raised money to protect the burrowing owls and other animals. But many times, it’s humans found threatening our wildlife.

“If we don’t protect our owls and our gopher tortoise and the rest of the animals we won’t have any here,” said CCFW President, Carl Veaux.
The burrowing owls have plenty of predators.
