Project SNOWstorm takes a unique approach to studying snowy owls. We are funded entirely by relatively small, tax-deductible contributions from the general public, without the large foundation, institutional or agency support typical of major research programs.

Despite that, we have grown in just eight years into one of the largest studies of snowy owls anywhere in the world, and by far the largest and most comprehensive one to examine the winter ecology of, and human-related threats to, this iconic species. What we do translates directly into conservation action for snowy owls.

Our team of more than 40 scientists, banders, wildlife veterinarians and pathologists all donate their time to Project SNOWstorm, so the money that we raise from our supporters can go as far as possible, underwriting the costs of tracking technology, laboratory analysis and other unavoidable expenses. We run a lean, tight ship, and every penny we receive counts.

We’re grateful for the ongoing support we’ve received from so many of you over the years. We realize that the pandemic continues to make life difficult for many, but if you are in a position to help us, we appreciate it.  (And if not, please share your enthusiasm for what we do with your friends and family.)

Here’s to a 2022 full of regal Arctic owls.
