Global Bird Rescue

Global Bird Rescue is a FLAP Canada initiative that will bring the issue of bird building collisions into the hands of the public. This weeklong event, dubbed Collision Count Week, will bring communities together to search for fallen birds in their neighbourhood.

Using the Global Bird Collision Mapper, participants will be able to report the location, status and species of the birds they recover, including the ability to upload a photo of each bird they report. This citizen science tool will show every collision reported on its interactive GIS map, providing invaluable data for a greater understanding of the bird-building collision issue.

Additionally, by encouraging people to search for birds, we hope to increase the chances of finding live birds sooner, thus increasing their chances for a successful rehabilitation/release.

Each year during the last week of September, teams and individuals take to the streets and to social media to raise awareness about this critical issue.
