Owl Research Institute ORI Charity Profile
The Owl Research Institute mission is three-fold:
1. To study the ecology of owls and their communities, both nationally and internationally, providing information about their ecology and natural history, as well as their distribution, abundance, survival, and breeding success.
2. To share our research with the scientific community, making it available to citizen scientists, and government and non-government agencies, providing tools for wise stewardship
3. To inspire the public about wildlife research and conservation, helping them to make more informed, more conservation-minded decisions.
ORI was born out of a need for more research about the world’s 225-some owl species. There was also a critical need to know more about the status and distribution of North American owls, several of which have federal or state listings: Species of Special Concern, Threatened, or Endangered.
Our priority is to study wildlife biology in the field, researching the natural history of wildlife and their habitats. Our findings are shared with wildlife professionals, both through publication and collaboration.
We also share our results with the public, through workshops, classes, conventions, and conferences. Our programs foster awareness of conservation issues so that the community can make effective, prudent decisions about local resources.
