The Snowy Owls of our study site in Utqiagvik, Alaska did not nest in 2020; therefore, we do not have any 2020 chicks available for adoption. As such, your Snowy Owl adoption will include band information for a 2019 chick - a group of young owls who have just reached their first birthday!
These adoptions and are a unique way to connect with the Snowy Owls of the Alaskan Arctic and help support our research and conservation around the species. Your Snowy Owl Adoption documents include the following:
- A personalized Certificate of Snowy Owl Adoption with banding information including band number, leg placement, banding date and location, number in nest, and hatch order
- Three color photos from the field
- A Snowy Owl fact sheet
- 2 Owl Research Institute stickers
- A detailed acknowledgment letter and thank you, personalized
- The Roost, annual newsletter of ORI
