Odanak is an adult female snowy owl originally banded in 2014 at the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport. She was recaptured there in December 2021 by Falcon Environmental, tagged with a GPS/GSM transmitter by Dr. Guy Fitzgérald at the University of Montréal, and relocated 110 km (70 miles) northeast to the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, where she was released Dec. 15, 2021. She is named for the Abenaki First Nation community of Odanak along the Saint-François River not far from her release site.  Her transmitter was underwritten by generous donations from the public to Project SNOWstorm.

We are raising $15,000 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.
