ABOUT

THE ISSUE  

Millions of birds are killed in North America by colliding with reflective or transparent glass every year. These collisions are a major daytime problem and many of the deaths are in Canada.   

  

Some cities are implementing bird friendly regulations for new buildings, but there are too many older buildings that continue to be bird collision hotspots. 

  

THE GOOD NEWS  

Simple changes can be made to help avoid the damage our city structures create. Deaths from these collisions are preventable. 

  

THE ACTION 

BSBC aims to educate the public on the issue of daytime glass bird strikes and encourage change in troublesome structures, both residential and commercial, until every building in Canada is bird safe.

  

3 EASY STEPS  

COMMERCIAL ACTION 

1. Join our first campaign

Our campaign calls on TD Bank (anchor tenant of TD Towers) to work with Cadillac Fairview (owners of TD Towers) and the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (owners of Cadillac Fairview) to apply bird saving window treatments to their high collision facades. Treatments will help save hundreds of birds from fatal strikes with the towers each year.

2. Install treatments on your windows
