Are You Concerned About Baling Twine and the Danger it Poses to Wildlife?

The YVAS Baling Twine Committee has been focusing on two goals for the past two years.  One has been to increase public awareness to the dangers of loose twine in the environment, not only for Ospreys but for all wildlife and domestic animals. However, Ospreys seem to have had more fatalities due to baling twine than most other animals in Montana.     

The second goal of the YVAS Baling Twine Committee is to establish, or help to establish, a recycling program for baling twine in the Billings area and along the Yellowstone River. A location to store a large amount of twine is needed before the BTC, or any organization, can proceed. Follow this link for more information.

Also see Osprey Nest Monitoring under Projects and Osprey Photo Pages for additional information. 

We want your photos!
