New Campaign Focuses on Cat Safety to Protect Birds.
With many species of bird in decline, Nature Canada, the oldest national nature conservation charity in the country, has launched a campaign to provide information as well as solutions to help support our wild bird populations.
The Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives campaign led by Nature Canada brings together organizations and individuals who are concerned about the wellbeing of both cats and birds. The campaign addresses the dangers of free-roaming for cats, and the corresponding threat they pose to birds, encouraging pet owners to take action and urging municipalities to implement strategies that promote positive changes for both these animals.
In 2015, Le Nichoir cared for 1649 wild birds brought to the Centre mostly due to human impacts, and unfortunately the most common cause of injury among the birds admitted was cat attacks. As a local partner of Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives , Le Nichoir supports this initiative in hopes of increasing awareness and encourages the public to visit their website at catsandbirds.ca.
