Raise awareness of bird collisions by educating developers, architects, builders, property managers and residents about best practices for buildings, landscaping and lighting.

Retrofit municipal facilities with effective collision deterrent solutions.

Offer incentives for retrofitting the most hazardous buildings.

Reduce light pollution at municipal facilities and ensure all new lighting, including street lighting, is Dark Sky-compliant.

Launch a city-wide “lights out” campaign to reduce light pollution, saving energy as well as birds.

Consider bird safety when updating guidelines and by-laws (e.g. Green Building Standard, Green Checklist, Permanent Signs on Private Property By-law).

Change municipal landscaping practices to minimize reflections and eliminate lethal traps such as drainage grates, standing water and open ventilation pipes.

Create an Ottawa Bird Strategy like Vancouver’s to promote bird protection and community health through safer design, landscaping and lighting, habitat protection and restoration, public education, bird-related tourism and more.

Support local innovation for the development of new collision deterrent products.
