MAKE YOUR COMMERCIAL/INSTITUTIONAL BUILDING BIRD SAFE
In collaboration with a multitude of stakeholders in the scientific and bird protection community, FLAP Canada has developed the first of its kind -- BirdSafe Standards and Risk Assessment designed to objectively assess a building's risk for bird collisions.
MAKE YOUR HOME SAFE FOR BIRDS
Now that winter is upon us, our bird feeders will be busier than ever. With this increase in activity comes an increase in bird collisions with your home windows. You can help reduce, and in some cases eliminate this threat with easy and inexpensive window treatments. Start by visiting our collision prevention page.

FLAP Canada's 2016 Bird Layout
On March 9th FLAP Canada held its Annual Bird Display at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). Over 2100 birds, all victims of window collisions, were laid out to raise awareness on this leading cause of bird death. FLAP wishes to thank the ROM for their ongoing support in providing us with the venue for this powerful event.
Join our citizen science project
By sharing your bird-window collision encounter, you are contributing to a global database. This will help the scientific and governmental communities better understand the magnitude of the bird-window collision issue and to inspire new and effective bird collision deterrent technologies.
Follow bird migration live
Like air quality, pollen count and UV reports, the FLAP Tracker is a Bird Migration Intensity report that displays current weather conditions, a wind direction map and weather radar technology that helps track the concentration of birds in the Great Lakes region.
HELP AN INJURED BIRD
If you're like the rest of us, it won't be long before you'll encounter a bird that has been injured from a window collision. Leaving this defenseless bird on the ground to recover from its injuries is not recommended. Instead, the bird will need all the help it can get...and this starts with you.
REPORTING SPECIES AT RISK
You can help protect listed bird species at the click of a mouse. Whenever you encounter a listed bird species that has died in a building collision, simply visit the Ministry of Natural Resource's website and fill in their Rare Species Reporting form.
JOIN THE BIRD RESCUE TEAM
There are over 940,000 registered buildings for the City of Toronto alone, not to mention the millions more across North America. All of these buildings have the potential for bird/window collisions. FLAP Canada needs your help to conduct search and rescue patrols for these fallen birds.
Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) CANADA
OUR MISSION: Working to safeguard migratory birds in the urban environment through education, policy development, research, rescue and rehabilitation.
