    The holes in the ozone layer  are caused by a series of reactions between O3 (ozone) and chlorine or bromine and converta as O3 to O2 (oxygen). The location of these reactions and the overall imbalance between the creation and depletion of O3 is determined by the specific weather patterns and atmospheric conditions of certain regions of the world. to unique atmospheric conditions in that region of the world. For example, in order for O3 to be depleted,PSCs, Stratospheric Clouds Mother of Pearl or Nacreous Clouds need to form within the ozone layer.  (read more here about the specific conditions needed

    Humans are not quite sophisticated enough to be able to control such weather patterns, and so no we cannot intentionally shift the location of the holes in the ozone layer.
