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 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  

RESIDENTIAL ACTION

1. Assess your home for trouble areas

Use this free DIY assessment tool from FLAP Canada, called BirdSafe. 

 

2. Install treatments on your windows

Use a DIY home kit from Feather Friendly or check out our

TAKE ACTION page for other products and treatments.

 

3. Share these actions with friends and family.

Share pictures of your treated windows on our Facebook or Instagram!
