Nicolet is an after-second-year (at least three-year-old) female snowy owl, trapped by Falcon Environmental at Montréal-Trudeau International Airport in Québec, and tagged by Dr. Guy Fitzgérald at the University of Montréal. She was relocated 120 km (75 miles) northeast to the south shore of the St. Lawrence River and released Dec. 18, 2021, near the village of Nicolet, for which she was named. Her transmitter was underwritten 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.
