Boreal Birds conservation predictament

Received from email Boreal songbirds initiative:



Hello,

Didn’t know if you’ve seen this yet, but a new report has come out saying millions of birds, particularly migratory birds, will be killed by tar sands development in Canada. It’s already in close to 50 papers and is becoming quite a big deal. Here’s an article from CBC:

Report page with link to report:

I’ve attached two images in case you were thinking about mentioning it in your blog. There’s also a video on YouTube talking about the huge impact the tar sands has on birds, mostly from an interview with Dr. Jeff Wells:

If your blog is in HTML you can embed the video into your blog by copying/pasting the code where it says “embed” to the right of the video.

Feel free to call if you have any questions (number below) - hope you find it interesting!

David
