In November of 2016, Avinet was purchased by the non-profit member organization, Association of Field Ornithologists (AFO), and moved all business and mist net production operations from Dryden, New York, to Portland, Maine in March 2017 under the management of Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI). AFO and BRI are pleased to continue the work of Avinet, providing the highest quality mist nets and field equipment to biologists, ecologists, and "wildlifers" everywhere.
The mission of our business is to provide the bird and bat researchers with the highest quality research equipment and supplies in the world while ensuring their legal and ethical use. Our goal is to effectively serve the research community and to aid in conservation efforts that align with the mission of Association of Field Ornithologists (AFO).
