Loren is a first-winter female snowy owl, trapped Jan. 25, 2024 by Falcon Environmental at the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport in Québec. She was underweight at the time of capture, so she was transported to Dr. Guy Fitzgerald at  Union Québécoise de Réhabilitation des Oiseaux de Proie (UQROP). After a health assessment and a chance to gain weight, she was fitted with a transmitter and relocated 75 km (45 miles) away from the airport, released Feb. 7, 2024, in farmland south of the St. Lawrence River. Her transmitter was paid for through 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.
