The Barn Owl Project Part 2

In Subang Jaya, the barn owls are here to nest and breed, if Associate Professor Dr Hafidzi Mohd Noor of Universiti Putra Malaysia and his collaborators have their way.

Another pair of barn owls was released on Thursday night – the third release in the pilot project by Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ), Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) and SJ Echo.

The project to urbanize barn owls for controlling urban rat populations is the first of its kind in Malaysia and Asia.

Kindly read my earlier post on these barn owls at

To-date, nine pairs of owls have been released. Last year, the owls were released in different locations, namely SS15, PJS9 and SS14.

I guess the barn owls had been effective. 
This animation by the Wall Street Journal – published January 12, 2017 – shows how money allegedly misappropriated from PM Najib Razak’s pet project 1MDB moved through global wealth centers before being used to buy real estate, art, and other assets around the world, including in New York and Beverley Hills.

This 1MDB shame won’t go away any time soon.
