Thank you for your support
We’re humbled and grateful beyond words for the support everyone’s extended to Project SNOWstorm again this winter. That’s taken many forms, but especially the over-the-top support for our Indiegogo campaign, which broke its goal of $15,000 last week and has continued to grow. Thank you all very, very much. Your help makes what we do possible.
Those donations allow us to buy transmitters, and to pay for the less glamorous but equally important work that takes place in the lab and behind the scenes — conducting necropsies on snowy owls that have been found dead, testing tissue samples for environmental contaminants, peering into the DNA of snowy owl populations, teasing out stable chemical isotopes that tells about their origins and diet, and much, much more.
As always, all donations to Project SNOWstorm are fully tax-deductible, through our 501 (c)(3) partner, the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art in Pennsylvania. And as always, every penny goes into the research, not overhead or salaries. (We’re all volunteers.)
The campaign ends at midnight this Friday, March 27. If you’ve meant to donate but haven’t had a chance, it’s not too late.
A brand new, last minute perk!
One amazing thing about this second crowd-funding campaign we’ve run to raise money for Snowy Owl research is the number of people that have stepped forward to donate fantastic Snowy Owl related items to help us raise money.
And now we have a terrific new perk for our final push! Unreal Birds has just donated five of their incredible, felt-plush snowy owls, which we’re offering on a first-come, first-served basis for new donors at the $100 level.
The folks behind these amazing stuffed toys know and love snowy owls, and are enthusiastic supporters of SNOWstorm — we appreciate their help, as we appreciate yours.
