Over 1 million native birds die in the US every day by colliding with glass surfaces like the sides of this bus shelter. Oklahoma State University is leading the way in studying this important bird conservation issue to find a solution. To address, Oklahoma State University has treated bus shelters with Feather Friendly markers shown to be effective at reducing collisions. This is one of the first field studies of the effectiveness of a collision deterrent installed on glass. By comparing collisions between treated and untreated shelters they will gain insight into reducing this major threat to native bird populations.
Feather Friendly® was developed as a solution to save birds from window collisions approximately twelve years ago and is on its 8th generation. Feather Friendly® headquarters are Toronto, Ontario which happens to be centred in a migratory bird path and has experienced significant fatalities due to glass buildings. Toronto was the first city in the world to create Safe Building Bylaws in bird conservation and Feather Friendly® helped to establish these new bylaws. In the twelve years, we have sold our solution globally with great success in reducing and eliminating bird collisions. We are proud to be endorsed by leading bird conservation organizations.
