Owls are one of the wise bird species that live on Earth.
Since the discovery of the world's ending in 2009, the governments began building the Arks so ensure that humanity survives from extinction, along with other animal species. Numerous owls were brought on board the Arks, into the Zoology Chamber, so they can survive the 2012 apocalypse, along with other animal species and birds. When the end of the world began, some owls were killed in the earthquakes and tsunamis worldwide or may have flown to high ground to avoid getting killed in the geological disasters.
When time was reset to year one and when the entire African continent had risen up, the Arks set sail for the Cape of Good Hope where the 2012 survivors (human and animal) can begin a new life and rebuild their species there.
