It’s estimated that between 1 and 10 migratory birds die per building, per year… and in an average city, that means a lot of bird deaths. Toronto alone has over 950,000 registered buildings, which together post a threat to over 9 million birds annually, and a recent research article found that somewhere between 100 million and 1 billion migrating birds die from colliding with buildings in North America each year. FLAP (Fatal Light Awareness Program) is aiming to change that, by ensuring that new buildings have bird-friendly glass installed, and older buildings are retrofitted with it.
