Beakwing Wants to Save Birds. Will You Help?

Beakwing Wants to Save Birds. Will You Help?

Beakwings is on a mission to save endangered and threatened birds; we also want to help those who share the same desire. We put together a list of things you can do to get started. Every action is essential, and we believe there's no small action one can do to start protecting our planet, birds, and wildlife habitats.

Here are a few things you can do:

Volunteer with your local bird sanctuary or bird center.

Volunteering with your local bird sanctuary or center is a great way to help the environment and connect with nature. Not only are you volunteering, but you're also supporting the birds to get accustomed to human contact so they can be released back into the wild.

When you volunteer at these places, you may be able to feed the animals, clean their cages, or even help them learn how to fly again! You'll also get to see a lot of different species up close and personal.

Volunteering is a great way to help out! There are plenty of volunteer opportunities across the country. It only takes one search on google to find a center nearby, and get in touch with them to find out how you can help.

So what are you waiting for? Go out there and make a difference today!

We encourage you to get out there and volunteer with your local bird sanctuary or center.

Become part of a bird association

There are hundreds of bird conservation organizations around the world that are working tirelessly to protect our feathered friends and their habitats. Some of them focus on specific species, while others work to preserve whole ecosystems. You can choose to support one or all of these organizations—it's up to you.

You can also get involved in citizen science projects that track birds' migrations and movements across the globe or volunteer at local wildlife sanctuaries and zoos. And if you're really ambitious, consider becoming an expert on some aspect of birds' biology so that when people ask you how they can help birds, you'll be able to tell them precisely what they need!

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), bird populations have been declining at a rate of up to 3% per year since 1970. In fact, the WWF estimates that nearly half of all bird species are threatened with extinction, which is why we need to take action now before it's too late.

One way you can help birds is by becoming an advocate for conservation. You can adopt a bird or become a member of a conservation organization like the American Bird Conservatory, National Wildlife Federation, National Geographic, etc. There are hundreds of bird associations worldwide that you can be part of and help protect birds from harm!

Create a bird-friendly habitat in your backyard.

Let's talk about your backyard.

You're probably familiar with the old adage "birds of a feather flock together." And it's true—birds' social lives are just as crucial to their survival as the food and water they need. That's why it's so vital for you to create a bird-friendly habitat in your backyard. Yes, your own backyard can be the starting point to help bird wildlife.

Your garden can be the starting point to help bird wildlife! Consider your garden as a habitat you're developing all year to supply food, shelter, and bird nesting locations.

To make your yard bird-friendly, consider these tips:

1. Plant native plants that are easy for birds to eat and nest in. Native plants have evolved with local climate and wildlife, so they're best suited for your area. You can find out what plants are native to your area by researching online or at a local nursery.

2. Create water features like ponds, pools, or bird baths to attract birds and other wildlife. Birds need clean water to drink and bathe in—and mud so they can build their nests out of it!

3. Provide food sources like bird feeders and birdbaths so that birds have plenty of options for finding food sources in your garden!

Make safer choices for yourself and the environment - be mindful about what you consume.

We know that this is a lot to take in—we get it. But we also know that you have an opportunity to make a small change in your life right now that will have a significant impact on the environment and your health.

There are many things to consider when choosing what to eat and drink. Still, one thing to remember is that the chemicals and processes used to produce the food or beverages you consume are risking your health. You may not realize it yet, but studies show that exposure to these chemicals can cause long-term health issues like cancer and other conditions. These chemicals are also harmful to animals and plants!

So how can we lower our risk of exposure? It's simple: Be mindful about what you consume. Choose organic foods whenever possible, especially meats and dairy products. Avoid packaged goods whenever possible (they contain many of these same chemicals); look for products labeled "non-GMO" or "organic."

Use reusable shopping bags; avoid disposable items like plastic bottles; take your own containers when buying takeout meals; don't use plastic.

This is such an important topic to discuss but let's take one step at a time.

Build political support for policy decisions that protect birds and their habitat by joining organizations that advocate for environmental issues.

It's easy to feel like the world is out of control. But if you want to take action and make a difference, there are plenty of ways to do it!

We can do this by fighting for policies that protect birds and their habitat, such as:

  • * Banning pesticides that harm bird populations

  • * Protecting forests from logging or development

  • * Reducing trash on beaches or in waterways

  • * Reducing carbon emissions from fossil fuels

We can also join organizations that advocate for environmental issues, like the World Wide Fund for Nature which has been working for decades to protect our natural resources and wildlife.

Don't worry if you're not an environmental scientist or a policy-maker—you can still help birds by joining organizations that advocate for bird preservation. They'll provide you with information about policies and legislation that may impact your local environment and help you get involved in the political process.

It's time to get involved!

There are many ways to do this. You could contact your local or state representatives and tell them why you think birds need to be protected. You could also get involved with organizations like the Audubon Society or the National Wildlife Federation. These groups have a lot of clouts, and they can use them to lobby for changes in government policy that will help protect birds and their habitat.

Support legislation that would make it harder to get permits to conduct activities that endanger birds such as oil drilling, fracking and logging.

These activities have already had a devastating impact on bird populations. For example, the use of pesticides has led to the loss of over 250 million birds every year. In addition to this, habitat destruction is also having an impact on bird populations. For example, there are around 20 million fewer insects in the UK than there were 40 years ago. This has decreased food sources for many birds and, therefore, fewer eggs being laid.

If we do not act now, then we will lose even more birds which will have a significant impact on our ecosystem as well as our economy.

Consider supporting legislation that would make it harder to get permits to conduct activities that endanger birds, such as oil drilling, fracking, and logging.

The oil industry is one of the biggest threats to our environment. Birds can be seriously harmed by oil spills. Oil companies should not be allowed to drill for oil on public lands. They should have their leases terminated immediately!

Fracking is another threat to our environment and wildlife. Fracking has been linked to water contamination and earthquakes. It also causes air pollution that can harm birds and other animals. We need more regulation of fracking operations so this activity does not continue at current levels or increase further!

Hundreds of millions of migratory birds die from collisions with windows and other structures every year. Millions more die from being poisoned by pesticides and other toxic chemicals. And still more are killed by oil drilling, fracking, and logging—all practices that are getting easier and easier to conduct thanks to relaxed regulations at the federal level.

If we want our children to grow up in a world where they can see the same birds their parents did, we need to take action now. We need to support legislation that would make getting permits to conduct activities that endanger birds harder.

Support Beakwings.
