ACT NOW to Save Wild Birds!
Wild birds are under siege. In New York State, they are threatened by a feral cat trap-neuter-return (TNR) bill that offers no provision for excluding return to critical wild bird habitat. Nationwide, they are threatened by amendments to appropriations bills that would prevent all enforcement of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA). Please take a moment to voice your opposition. Your action is critically needed! Please click here to learn how you can help.

Twilight Bat and Insect Walks in Central Park
Tuesdays, July 14-August 11
Guide: Paul Keim
Explore the mysteries of Central Park at twilight as we seek these fascinating and misunderstood flying mammals—and learn about their great importance to our environment. We'll see local bat species in flight as they hunt and dive for insects, and hear them with an echolocator. Other nocturnal creatures like crickets and katydids may be seen as well.
Be a part of Project Safe Flight by Using Our New Online Database, D-Bird, Now Mobile-Friendly!
D-Bird, our crowd-sourced bird mortality data collection tool, has received a major update! Now it is possible to quickly and easily send reports to D-bird from any mobile device. Visitors to the desktop version of D-Bird will also notice the reporting form has received a facelift – the data entry process is now more streamlined and intuitive.
If you find a dead or injured bird, you can make a valuable contribution to Project Safe Flight by providing us with information about the bird at www.d-bird.org. To see an interactive map of D-Bird results and to learn more about Project Safe Flight, please click here.
This work is a component of Project Safe Flight, part of our broader effort generously supported by the Leon Levy Foundation to make the City a safer place for birds.
