Join Bird Friendly Halifax!

Nature Nova Scotia is participating in the new Bird Friendly Halifax coalition, a group of like-minded environmental organizations, researchers, citizen scientists, and bird lovers trying to make the HRM an officially-designated Bird Friendly City. You can help!

Our goal: make Halifax a Nature Canada-certified Bird Friendly City

How we’re going to achieve our goal: 1) Assess just how “bird friendly” HRM currently is, 2) Engage a network of stakeholders who can help (including organizations, decision makers, and the public), and 3) Complete actions together that reduce bird threats and improve local stewardship.

What we’ve done so far: We held a panel discussion about the state of HRM’s birds during the Nature Nova Scotia Celebration of Nature in May 2021, where we learned about the threat of window-strikes, cats, and issues with habitat connectivity. Meeting regularly with coalition members in the months after, we discussed these gaps at the city level and what actions might be taken to create solutions. In May 2022, Halifax Regional Council agreed to adopt the Bird Friendly Halifax movement and contribute staff resources to our group’s work. We’ve applied to Nature Canada for Bird Friendly entry-level status and look forward to working further on the actions identified as priority bird needs!

You can help!
