Birds are literally falling from the sky! The cause? Starvation!

Birds are literally falling from the sky! The cause? Starvation!
Red Knots Flying

Vancouver, BC (RPRN) 06/08/10 — Can you imagine heading out for your annual trip home only to find that the fuel station you were counting on had closed? That's what is happening to many of our migratory birds. Important bird resting and feeding spots, called staging areas, are disappearing. Marshes have been drained and turned into subdivisions. Tidal basins that once held an abundance of foods for shore birds on the move have been fished out.

The Minas Basin on Canada's world famous Bay of Fundy is one staging area at risk. You can help!

When looking at the Minas Basin, a protected region under Nature Canada's Important Bird Area program - you may see the beauty and serenity of the shore - but if you look more closely, you'll see that this essential feeding and resting place for migratory birds is threatened by industrial development, poor forestry and agricultural practices and lack of sewage treatment.

Please consider a donation today, in any amount you can afford. Your support today will help Important Bird Areas like this one be monitored and cared for to conserve birds and their habitats - an effort we've been leading the way on for the past seven decades - with support from concerned people like you.
