Welcome to Bird Safe Guelph
Every year in Canada, an estimated 269 million birds and 2 million nests are destroyed due to human activities and infrastructure. Over 95% of bird deaths are caused by cat predation, and collisions with windows, vehicles, and transmission lines. Our mission is to educate our community about these issues and inspire action that helps save birds lives.
Guelph is a Bird Friendly City!
In 2022, Guelph became one of Nature Canada’s Bird Friendly cities. Our members continue to work toward improving bird safety in Guelph and helping the City uphold our designation. As part of the Bird Friendly Cities requirement, we host the annual Guelph Bird Day as a celebratory and educational event for community members on World Migratory Bird day. Save the date for this year’s Guelph Bird Day on Saturday May 13th 2023!
