Welcome to birdsafe.ca, where you can find out how and why to keep birds safe from daytime and nighttime bird-building collision threats, for your home and for your workplace.
Each year, more than 25 million migratory birds are killed across Canada as a direct result of bird-building collision fatalities. That number is exponentially more when factoring in bird deaths by cats, agriculture, climate change, pollution, invasive species and the erosion of habitat due to mass urbanization. We can only expect that number to continue to grow, unless we all work together to help mitigate local biodiversity loss through urban development that preserves wildlife species, flora and fauna for human and ecosystem benefit.
“It is a shame to turn (our country) into a wasteland without plants, trees, birds and sea animals, and cutting off trees to erect buildings…There should be a peace treaty between Man and the tree, as well as Man and birds, because we continue to transgress upon them.”
—Michel Aoun, President of Lebanon
