For 30+ years, the Owl Research Institute (ORI) has been dedicated to scientific research of owls — their ecology, natural history, and habitat relationships.

Because owls are chronically under-researched and poorly understood, ORI strives to provide high-quality, long-term studies of owls and use the findings to promote conservation.

ORI Director and Researcher, Denver Holt, and Daniel have worked together on two cover stories for National Geographic Magazine as well as on several ORI research projects. Daniel regularly contributes photographs to ORI for use on their website, newsletters, and events.
