LONG-EARED OWLS

Long-eared Owls tend to fly under the radar, not garnering the attention of their larger and more vocal doppelganger, the Great Horned Owl. Yet these quiet, communally oriented owls need our help - population data of 2017 estimates their population at a 91% decline, more than any other North American owl species. 

 

Fortunately, the Owl Research Institute is in a good position to help. We conduct the longest running study in North America, and probably the world, on Long-eared Owls. This data is used to better understand the species - its strengths and vulnerabilities; as well as influence land management decisions to preserve critical habitat. 

 

At the Owl Research Institute, we hold a special fondness for Long-eared Owls; after all, as one of our very first species of concentrated study, the Owl Research Institute has grown-up around Long-eared Owls. They have taught us so much about owls, the natural world, and research. And while we will always be in awe of these special raptors, they need our help and protection more than ever. Help us help them by symbolically adopting a Long-eared Owl today.

ABOUT YOUR LONG-EARED OWL ADOPTION

When you sponsor a Long-eared Owl, you ensure that our research on these owls continues. At the Owl Research Institute, we know that conservation efforts begin with reliable data. We provide this data and work hard to ensure that it gets to the right decision makers.

 

Our Long-eared Owl study is conducted out of many different study sites in western Montana. Travel to and from our sites, equipment, manpower, and data management are all costs associated with the Long-eared Owl study.

Your adoption helps cover these necessary costs and ensure that our study continues - working to protect this species in need.

HOW LONG-EARED OWL ADOPTION WORKS

As a non-profit, we designed our adoption program to help fund research and conservation around specific species. 

 

All of our research is conducted on wild owls in their natural habitat. We keep no owls at the Owl Research Institute and are not a rehabilitation center. We are a field-based research institute with an emphasis on conservation and education.

 

We are enormously grateful to those who make the decision to support our work. The adoption program is a unique way to donate to the Owl Research Institute and ensure that research on Long-eared Owls continues.
