Snowy owl named Fond du Lac has provided data over two breeding seasons (features UWGB alumnus)
You don’t need a dictionary to know the meaning of the term “charismatic wildlife species.” Just picture a snowy owl. Large in stature, covered in spectacular black-and-white feathers and with big yellow eyes, these birds have made the world fall in love with them. Affection and concern for the species led Racine native David Brinker ’77 (Science and Environmental Change) and a group of other ornithologists in 2013 to form Project SNOWstorm, a crowd-funded initiative to study and help conserve the owls. Brinker also spent time as a graduates student in the Richter Museum.
