Building collisions are a leading human cause of avian mortality, killing as many as a billion birds per year in North America, including perhaps one million in Ottawa. Anouk, founder of Safe Wings Ottawa, will explain why birds collide with buildings, and share strategies to prevent collisions at home and at your workplace. She will also talk about how she and other volunteers are researching and raising awareness of the problem, and discuss what we can do as a city to create a safer human-built environment for birds.

OFNC monthly meetings are open to the general public.
