Project SNOWstorm

The Ned Smith Center is the institutional home of Project SNOWstorm, one of the largest and most ambitious snowy owl research studies in the world. Since 2013, more than 40 scientists, banders, wildlife veterinarians and pathologists, have been studying the winter ecology of these huge raptors when they come south from the Arctic. To date, more than 70 snowy owls, from the Dakotas to New England, have been tagged with high-tech GPS transmitters, providing an unprecedented look into the biology of these magnificent hunters.
