Bleuet is a juvenile female snowy owl trapped by Falcon Environmental at Trudeau-Montréal International Airport, fitted with a transmitter by Dr. Guy Fitzgérald of the University of Montréal, and relocated Feb. 16, 2022, 65 km (40 miles) to farmland west of Lanoraie, QC, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. She was named for the many blueberry fields near her release site, although she almost immediately returned to the airport. Bleuet’s transmitter, which had previously been deployed on Aimié, was paid for by generous donations from the public 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.
