Aimé is an adult female trapped at the Montréal-Trudeau Airport, tagged by Dr. Guy Fitzgérald from the University of Montréal, and relocated 80 km to the south shore of the St. Lawrence River Nov. 29, 2021, near the community of Saint-Aimé. She is one of more than 40 airport relocation owls whose movements we have tracked to learn how best to prevent owl-airplane collisions. Unfortunately, she returned to the airport and was killed by a jet engine blast on Dec. 13, 2021. Her transmitter was paid for by generous donations to Project SNOWstorm.
We are raising $20,000 this year for Snowy Owl research.
We're continuing our work this winter, learning more about these majestic Arctic predators, but we can't do it without your help. Your donation to Project SNOWstorm is tax-deductible through our institutional home, the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art in Pennsylvania, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
