Collisions with glass windows, walls, and other structures kill up to a billion birds a year in the U.S. alone – making this one of the greatest human-caused threats to bird populations.
Lawmakers have reintroduced the Bird-Safe Buildings Act, a bill that would help reduce these deaths by directing public buildings to incorporate bird-friendly design and materials.
As Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Senator Shelley Moore Capito could help save millions of birds today by co-sponsoring the Bird-Safe Buildings Act.
The federal government, which oversees nearly 10,000 buildings in the U.S., can play a huge role in reducing glass collisions, potentially saving the lives of millions of birds.
Please ask your Representative and Senators to co-sponsor the Bird-Safe Buildings Act now!
I ask that you become an original cosponsor of the Bird-Safe Buildings Act. This critical law, which passed last year in the House, will help prevent the deaths of millions of birds by integrating bird-friendly building materials and design features into public buildings. These smart solutions, when applied to either new construction or existing buildings, not only save energy but can also be cost-neutral for U.S. taxpayers.
Thank you for acting now to protect birds across the United States.
