Your participation in BRI’s sponsorship program supports our efforts to band and monitor Common Loons and Northern Saw-Whet Owls. By tracking banded individuals, biologists learn key information about the ecology of these species. Examining the health of the birds we band provides key information not only on the well-being of these animals but of the environment we share with them.
Each sponsorship package includes a glossy photograph alongside educational material about BRI’s work with the species you’ve sponsored.
