|The early birds are on the wing — but will they make it? During spring migration, more than 350 species of North American birds begin the journey back to their nesting grounds, but hundreds of millions of them never arrive. Beyond natural, expected losses, countless birds die unnecessarily during migration, running afoul of manmade hazards like open oil pits, cell towers, and power lines in their path.|
Happily, there’s hope, as Audubon continues its work to strengthen the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and other measures that make birds’ annual journey safer. Your support makes those efforts possible — and birds beyond number will benefit.
But there’s still a lot left to do. One easy but important step: Protecting birds from harm through a range of inexpensive and practical measures that Audubon works to promote.
