The Western Asio Flammeus Landscape Study (WAfLS) is a community science project designed to gather information to better evaluate the population status of this species. Such information is needed by conservation practitioners who want to design management actions that will reverse the Short-eared Owl population declines. The Western Asio Flammeus Landscape Study (WAfLS) is a community science project designed to gather information to better evaluate the population status of this species.

Project WAfLS is an eight-state program designed to assess the population status, trends, and threats against the Short-eared Owl, an enigmatic, open-country species. Project WAfLS engages enthusiastic citizen-scientist volunteers across the west to gather critical survey data, enabling a rigorous assessment of the status of this species. Our results directly influence high-value conservation actions by state and federal agencies, and our volunteers are rewarded with training and experience in critical observation, the scientific method, data collection, and regularly report unique and exciting observations.
