Alexander Chang:

Snowy Owl Wintering Ecology in

Alex grew up in Ontario and is now a masters student at the U of S. He fell in love with nature at a young age while canoeing through the beautiful lakes of the Canadian Shield. Now, in the prairies, he is fascinated by the large numbers of wintering Snowy Owls that we are blessed to see in Saskatchewan. The subject of his current project is the snowy owl's use of habitat and space during winter, how this differs between the sexes, and its implications for overwinter survival. Look forward to learning a lot about the snowy owl, a species short listed to become Canada's national bird.
