In the May, our Refuge joined with the Teton Raptor Center's Poo-Poo Project to help prevent cavity-nesting birds from becoming entrapped in vault toilets as they enter ventilation pipes thinking they are a place to roost, nest or cache food. Thirty-one National Wildlife Refuges have installed the screens, thus protecting owls, kestrels, wood ducks, mergansers, buffleheads, goldeneyes, and woodpeckers found throughout the United States. Since the Project began in 2013, the Center has distributed 8,668 screens through 255 partners in 33 states.
