For 25 years, FLAP Canada has been working to safeguard birds from the hazards posed by reflective glass & light pollution. In that time, their efforts have saved thousands of birds and will help future generations too.
It’s worth noting, that this charity has just 3 full-time employees, with their ranks bolstered by a small army of 100+ volunteers. Some loyal volunteers have been with the group for decades, like Wendy, pictured here sporting vintage FLAP clothing from the 90's.
To learn more about FLAP and what’s happening on the front lines of urban bird conservation, a special screening of the documentary film, The Messenger, will be happening at Toronto Botanical Garden on Thursday, March 22nd, 7p.m. Q&A to follow.

You can also speak with staff and volunteers at Eco-events across the Greater Toronto Area. FLAP's major public awareness event happens at the Royal Ontario Museum each spring. All the birds collected by volunteers from the previous season are laid out in a display that shines a light on how massive the problem of window collision truly is.
FLAP has a new sister website, BirdSafe, where you can find out how to take action.
If you have time to spare, there are many ways you can help as a volunteer. Email Paloma Plant at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the best way your skills can be put to use.
