Adopt a Banded Snowy Owl Chick!

Snowy Owl chicks from the 2018 breeding season are now banded! As a result, we have a limited number of chicks to be adopted! These symbolic adoptions 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 come in a folder and include the following:

  • A personalized Certificate of Snowy Owl Adoption with banding information including band number, leg placment, banding date and location, number in nest, and hatch order

  • An 8 x 10 color photograph of Owl Research Institute Founder Denver Holt banding this season's chicks in the field

  • A Snowy Owl fact sheet

  • 2 Owl Research Institute stickers

  • An acknowledgment letter and thank you

  • Optional gift message to recipient

  • Click on the photo to adopt!
