Is it possible for a little yellow bird to start a revolution? Could you think of anyone better to inspire the creation of an environmental group that would radically change the way we view our built environment?

The Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) was born 25 years ago out of a desire to prevent night-migrating birds from flying into the lights shining from office towers. FLAP soon learned that window collisions during the day far eclipsed the night-time issue...both in homes and corporate buildings. Since then all our efforts have been poured into protecting migratory birds from the life-threatening dangers of human-created environments.

Through tireless advocacy and community engagement, and thanks to our network of devoted volunteers, FLAP Canada has accumulated invaluable data on the bird/building collision issue both during the day and night. Through strong partnerships,we are developing municipal and national standards and policies, and helping to create effective bird-collision deterrent solutions.

Our expertise has gained world renown and influenced the private sector, homeowners and governments to save birds. And that little yellow bird? Click here to read the extraordinary story of one powerful voice. For a list of our 25 years of achievements, click here.
