Never Collide has no official partnerships with the organizations we list on our site and receives no compensation or in-kind donations from the companies whose products we recommend.
We are a volunteer and community-led initiative.
Millions of birds are killed in North America every year by colliding with reflective or transparent glass. These collisions are a major daytime problem and many of the deaths are in Canada.
Some cities are implementing bird friendly regulations for new buildings, but there are too many older buildings that continue to be bird collision hotspots.
THE GOOD NEWS
Simple changes can be made to help avoid the damage our city structures create. Deaths from these collisions are preventable.
Never Collide aims to educate the public on daytime glass bird strikes and encourage change in troublesome structures, both residential and commercial, until every building in Canada is bird-safe.
1. Assess your home for trouble areas
Use this free DIY assessment tool from FLAP Canada, called BirdSafe.
2. Install treatments on your windows
Use a DIY home kit from Feather Friendly or check out our TAKE ACTION page for other products and treatments.
3. Share with others
Share pictures of your treated windows on our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!
Help Ontario MPP, Chris Glover, pass the motion to include bird-friendly building design into the Ontario Building Code. Sign the petition, share with others, tag @chrisglovermpp on your social media posts, and use the hashtag #BirdFriendlyOntario.
