About

Humans are captivated by birds because of their beauty, diversity, and capacity for flight, and University of Wyoming students are no exception. Yet for many students it can be difficult to gain paid hands-on experience with birds, skills needed for careers in the field of ornithology. 

WYOBIRD, the Wyoming Bird Initiative for Resilience and Diversity (wyobird.org), provides undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to work directly with our feathered friends. Our mission is to advance knowledge, appreciation, and conservation of birds locally and globally, and we achieve this by conducting novel research on birds, training a new generation of scientists, and sharing science through public outreach. 

Your gift on Giving Day helps pay stipends to undergraduate avian interns who will assist with local projects that monitor tree swallow nests and a bird banding station during fall migration. With $2,500 we can support one summer intern, and an additional $2,500 supports a fall semester intern. 

Please support our mission so that UW students of all backgrounds can pursue their interests while contributing to bird conservation in Wyoming and beyond. Thank you!
