10 ducks can be seen swimming in a wetland through some branches. One duck is rearing up flapping its wings.

What is the program all about?


Threat reduction

Reduce threats to birds through educational and regulatory measures to create more opportunities for birds to survive and thrive.


Habitat Protection, Restoration, and Climate Resiliency

Factor in the well-being of birds and communities when planning urban development projects to ensure that habitat conservation and restoration are prioritized.


Community Outreach and Education

Officially recognizing and celebrating days like World Migratory Bird Day will allow communities to celebrate birds and the diverse places they call home.

Will you commit to making Selwyn Township bird-friendly?

Canada’s birds need your help. There are three billion fewer birds in North America today than 50 years ago. Much of these losses are caused by human activities.

Birds play an essential role in maintaining healthy and resilient ecosystems in our communities and our planet.
