Tips to help wildlife
Prevent window collisions.
Window collisions kill as many as one billion birds each year. Birds cannot differentiate between the reflection of trees and skies on glass windows and actual open skies. Help prevent window strikes by covering windows with screening or netting installed 2-3 inches from the glass. Exterior shutters, stickers and decals, or leaving vertical blinds half open, can also help prevent window strikes.
The Alabama Wildlife Center is Alabama’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation facility, caring annually for almost 2,000 wild bird patients from more than 100 species. AWC is a nonprofit organization with a dual mission:
to provide medical and rehabilitative care for Alabama’s injured and orphaned native birds in order to permit their return to the wild, and to educate people in order to heighten awareness and appreciation of Alabama’s native wildlife.
