Did you know that collisions with glass claim the lives of
hundreds of millions of birds in the United States each year?
Birds that have successfully flown thousands of miles on migration can then die in seconds on a pane of glass. Luckily, we have the bird-friendly design strategies and technology needed to make a difference now.
Please urge your U.S. Representative to support the 2015 Federal Bird-Safe Buildings Act, which would help prevent the deaths of millions of birds – like this Painted Bunting – by including bird-safe building materials and design features across federal buildings.
Feel inspired to support other bird conservation efforts? A number of bills have been introduced in Congress to conserve migratory birds, and to protect birds from threats such as neonicotinoid pesticides. You can help by urging your elected officials to become cosponsors of these bills.
- Please urge your U.S. Representative to cosponsor the Saving America’s Pollinators Act of 2015. The bill requires EPA to suspend the registration of neonicotinoid insecticides pending thorough review of the adverse effects on birds, bees, butterflies, bats, and other beneficial organisms. Take action now!
- The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) has supported 451 conservation projects on more than 3.7 million acres of critical bird habitat Tell your representatives: Let’s build on this conservation success by reauthorizing the NMBCA! Please act today!
Thanks for taking action to conserve birds and their habitats!
