Many organizations across Atlantic Canada have been working to locate and monitor colonies, support habitat stewardship, research breeding and migratory behaviour, and provide appropriate resources to people who encounter Bank Swallows during construction or maintenance at potential nest colony sites. To bring these organizations together, the Atlantic Canada Bank Swallow Working Group (run by Birds Canada) was formed in 2020. Check out these organizations for more information.
