Did you know that collisions with buildings and other structures pose a serious threat to birds, claiming the lives of 365 million to 1 billion individuals annually? That is the third leading cause of bird death in the United States! To better understand this across the state, we at Georgia Audubon created Project Safe Flight Georgia, a program aimed at collecting data on collisions and working towards making our state safer for our birds.
During spring and fall migration, Project Safe Flight volunteers monitor for collisions victims, gathering vital data for this initiative. Join us on August 16th as Conservation Director Adam Betuel outlines the ways buildings are a threat to our birds, what can be done to make our state safer for birds, as well as how you can participate in Project Safe Flight. This webinar is aimed at participants who want to know more about this issue, those interested in volunteering for our collision reduction programming, and for returning volunteers who need a refresher on data collection and correct protocols. Fall migration is rapidly approaching and we need your help!
