Canada's urban centres include vibrant bird habitats for resident and migrating species. Many key Important Bird Areas are found in and near cities. Unfortunately, urban environments also contain some of the biggest human-related threats to birds, such as predation from cats, and collisions with windows.
Bird Studies Canada's urban bird programs create education and stewardship opportunities to address urban conservation issues. Our goal is to connect residents of Toronto and Vancouver with nature by engaging them in meaningful conservation with lasting impacts.
