Your #GivingTuesday gift today will put GPS tracking collars on four western swans starting in January 2023. Your gift of any amount will be matched!

Here’s what’s happening. Several hundred trumpeter swans winter at Summer Lake Wildlife Area in Oregon. It is an important Rocky Mountain Population wintering area for trumpeter swans from Canada and the Rocky Mountain west.

On their way, they are feeding and resting in places that are largely unknown. It is not known where these swans spend the summer to raise a family. It is not known if migration routes pass through tundra swan hunt zones.

A GPS tracking collar answers these important questions.

The consequences of not knowing where wintering western swans are through the year means that these areas may not be safe for swans nor excluded from future hunt zones.

The good news is that you can help!

The Trumpeter Swan Society needs to raise $4,800 to put four GPS collars on western Rocky Mountain Population swans this winter.

So it is urgent that you give today.

Your #GivingTuesday gift right now will purchase GPS tracking collars to track swans for up to three years.

And here's an extra bonus of the tracking! Information from the swans' locations will be part of a downloadable STEM-based educational booklet for grade school children! You will be helping to connect children to nature and the need for its protection.

Your donation is matched thanks to a generous donor in memory of her husband who helped restore swans to the midwest.

Please make your #GivingTuesday gift right now so four western swans can receive GPS tracking collars to make sure where they nest and migrate is safe, secure and known.

Yes! I want to make a gift to put a GPS tracking collar on a trumpeter swan! My gift will be matched.
