Dear Peter,
Twice a year, billions of American birds lift up and migrate to and from their breeding and wintering homes. But these days, they find fewer rest stops and places to catch a bite along the way. Falling numbers of birds tell the story: Migratory birds are in trouble. Make a donation to ABC today to help birds lift off and travel safely.
We aim to make this year the beginning of safer travel for migratory birds. We are already working to secure safe habitats for forest, grassland, and coastal birds. But given the volume of birds on the move, the great distances to cover, and the growing number of real-time threats, we must greatly accelerate our on-the-ground actions if we are going to save the greatest animal migration on Earth.
We need to raise $1 million for migratory birds by the end of the year. All donations made by December 31 will be matched! We need your help as never before. Please donate today.
Travel is challenging whether you are a bird or a person. Wishing you safe travels this Thanksgiving, and our sincere thanks for giving a lift to birds and to American Bird Conservancy.
Best regards,

P.S. Giving Tuesday is five days away! We hope you think of ABC on Tuesday, November 29 and encourage your fellow conservationists to make us part of their charitable giving this year.
Visit us at abcbirds.org, or on Facebook (@AmericanBirdConserve) and Twitter (@abcbirds1) to get involved this #GivingTuesday.

When it comes to wind energy and wildlife, siting is everything. Right now, a disaster is in the making on the south shore of Lake Ontario in New York, where – if plans proceed – millions of birds will be threatened by a gauntlet of up to 71 turbines, each up to 620 feet tall.

Recent studies show that the routes used by migrating birds for millennia will put them squarely in the danger zone of these turbines. Many of the species that will be put at risk are becoming rare, like Rusty Blackbird and Short-eared Owl. Can we risk putting deadly obstacles in their way?

Renewable energy is important in the fight against climate change, but proper siting is essential to avoid needless mortality of wildlife. Tell your government officials that the shoreline of Lake Ontario is NOT the place for large-scale, industrial wind energy. Thank you!
