Bird-Safe Campus

Join us in saving thousands of wild birds from death caused by window collisions: make your college or university building, or the entire campus, BirdSafe!

Ways to Participate

Students

  • Become a Bird Collision Monitor at your school or in Downtown Milwaukee. Bird Collision Monitors check near campus buildings during migration periods to search for and rescue or recover window collision victims. Monitoring can help save injured birds; it gives you an opportunity to participate in citizen-science, and can help alert school officials to the need for window-collision prevention on campus.
  • Be an advocate for bird window collision awareness and action on campus: post flyers, write newsletter articles and blog entries, and make collision monitoring a service project for your on-campus club.
  • Treat your own home or dorm windows to help prevent bird collisions.

Faculty

  • Incorporate the window collision issue and the citizen-science of WIngs Bird Collision Monitoring into your classroom or lecture hall.
  • Be an advocate for bird window collision awareness and action on campus.
  • Treat your own home and school office windows to help prevent bird collisions.

Hope's Lights 2014

Each year we illuminate the shelter and grounds at the Wisconsin Humane Society with holiday lights in honor and in memory of special people and animals in our lives. Please help us kick off the season of giving with a gift to Hope’s Lights. Every $25 light makes a real difference in the life of an animal.
