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.
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.
