The Owl Research Institute
Dedicated to owl conservation through research and education
We conduct long-term research on owls, their prey species, and their relationship to the habitat in which they live.
ORI engages and educates a global audience through our annual newsletter, live cams, social media, articles, field tours, online and live presentations, and more.
We provide partners, such as federal and state agencies, private conservation groups, and land owners, with vital information to promote meaningful and informed habitat management.
