BENEFITING: Owl Research Institute, Inc.

EVENT: #STARTARYOT Challenge

EVENT DATE: Aug 19, 2013

THE STORY:

Born in 1988, ORI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to wildlife research, conservation, and education. We are based in western Montana, although the effects of our work extend worldwide.

The institute begins with owls — charismatic raptors that are incredibly effective at generating interest in the natural world, as well as support for conservation. Despite their popularity, however, most species are poorly researched and little known.

In Montana alone, ten of the state’s 15 owl species have federal, state, or tribal listings. Most need special management to promote their conservation, while a few require   data to assess their status. To improve scientific knowledge of owls, we conduct seven long‐term research projects in Montana and Alaska.

We share findings with resource managers, scientists, and the public, to improve environmental decision-making. Our data assists with forest management plans, habitat conservation efforts, and the listing and de-listing of critical species.

ORI studies are also infused into our science education programs: Days in the Field, internships, and lectures. Each year, we donate 1,000 hours of intensive instruction to more than 700 people, primarily in western Montana.

Further education occurs through publication and media. Publication entails 90+ scientific books and peer-reviewed papers, and a series of wildlife books for children. Recent media outreach includes the BBC Frozen Planet series, CNN productions, and National Geographic.

Consider making a donation to help support our research, education, and conservation efforts!
