Poo-Poo Project

The Poo-Poo Project is now in all 50 states and has gone international in Canada and the U.S. Virgin Islands!

The Poo-Poo Project prevents wildlife entrapment in vault toilets throughout the US by installing safe and effective screens on the ventilation pipes.

Each year thousands of animals that prefer dark, narrow spaces for nesting and roosting become entrapped and die in vertical open pipes. Vault toilets, the self-contained restrooms found in many of America’s wilderness areas, feature vertical ventilation pipes that mimic natural nesting cavities. Birds enter the ventilation pipe and get stuck in the ‘basement’ of the vault toilet.

Teton Raptor Center’s Poo-Poo Project was created to address this problem by covering vault toilet ventilation pipes with screens that prevent wildlife entrapment without restricting airflow. TRC developed the screens, which are durable, easy to install and affordable.

Since 2013 the Poo-Poo Project has distributed more than 19,000 Poo-Poo Screens to more than 659 partners in all 50 states as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada.

The Poo-Poo Screen 2.0 is durable, easy to install, allows for ventilation and are affordable at just $44.50 per screen. Teton Raptor Center has distributed more than 18,000 of these screens throughout North America.

Teton Raptor Center was awarded the “Wings Across the Americas Award for Habitat and Partnership” from the USDA Forest Service in recognition of the conservation impact and partnership of its Poo-Poo Project.
