Bird Friendly City: Saving Birds in Canadian Cities and Towns
Nature Canada’s Bird Friendly City program
provides a framework for municipalities across Canada to create safer conditions for bird populations. In the last 50 years, we have lost 3 billion birds in North America with many of the declines occurring in urban environments due to a variety of human actions. The Bird Friendly City program addresses the main threats and concerns that our birds face in our municipalities, and identifies actions to mitigate threats, increase and protect natural habitat and engage communities to celebrate birds.
In this presentation, Nature Canada’s Aly Hyder Ali and Ted Cheskey will speak to the current declines bird populations are facing, how the Bird Friendly City framework provides a template to address these declines, and Nature Canada’s efforts in developing coalitions across the country to make their cities Bird Friendly.
