Save Our Boreal Birds

From David Childs:
The Boreal Songbird Initiative, along with other environmental groups like Bird Studies Canada, Nature Canada, the David Suzuki Foundation, among others created a petition called “Save our Boreal Birds” a little over a year ago. This petition will be sent to the Prime Minister of Canada and many provincial leaders, and asks that vital bird habitat be kept intact despite the fact that over 30% of the Boreal Forest has already been designated for development. As you may know, many migratory birds that travel through the US and other countries breed in the Boreal Forest to the north.

We’re launching the petition on May 12th, and are currently at about 60,000 signatures. We’re trying to get up to 70,000 before the launch.

Take a moment to sign the online petition, won't you?
