The Squamish Environment Society is leading an initiative to have Squamish certified as a Bird Friendly City under Nature Canada’s certification program. This certification requires that a bird action committee work with its municipality to reduce threats to birds; promote habitat protection, restoration, and climate resiliency; and provide community outreach and education.

Background: 

Birds, like most wildlife, are battling many threats to their survival each and every day. Due to threats like cities full of glass, habitat loss, invasive species, roaming cats, off-leash dogs, disease and poisons, bird populations and biodiversity are in a frightening decline. In Canada, window collisions kill 16 to 42 million birds a year. Homes in Canada account for 90% of such deaths.
