Thanks to everyone who responded so quickly and generously to our reminder that this year’s fundraising campaign is in its final days. In barely 36 hours we’ve reached more than 120 supporters, and an additional $4,000 in contributions — all of which will go directly into our research.

One exceptionally generous supporter made a gift at the $3,000 level — and will receive a signed, 30×40-inch canvas print of one of our good friend Northside Jim’s gorgeous snowy owl photos as a thank-you. But we’re also grateful for every donation, regardless of the size.

One of the most gratifying aspects of this effort has been the tremendous support we’ve received from the general public and birding and ornithological organizations. We’re humbled by your faith in the work we’re doing.

The campaign ends in two days, so it’s not too late to help us secure the future of Project SNOWstorm.

And as always, thanks.
