Each year in Canada, more than 25 million migratory birds die 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.
“We have taken over the earth and the sea and the sky, but with skill and care and knowledge, we can ensure that there is still a place on Earth for birds in all their beauty and variety – if we want to – and surely, we should.”
—Sir David Attenborough
