How do we take care of Endangered Birds?
Many birds are becoming endangered species rapidly due to a range of different threats. The leading threat is deforestation. According to the WWF, the world is losing 18.7 million acres of forests annually. This is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute.1
Due to deforestation and a lack of food sources for birds, birds move to more urbanized areas to look for food and safe places to nest.
The house sparrow has always lived comfortably around humans in the populated areas. However, today they are on the red list of endangered birds due to a lack of nesting places and food.
Why should we protect endangered birds?
It is important to protect these endangered birds because they help with ecological balance by eating mosquitoes and pollinating plants.2
This will change the lives of endangered species forever.
More and more facilities are creating a green area on top of their buildings in order to accommodate the endangered birds that are experiencing habitat loss.3 The largest green roof located in Manhattan, New York has encountered over 25 different species of birds. The implementation of the green roofs in urbanized areas is providing the endangered birds with safer places to perch and nest. This insures security to the house sparrows and creates a chance for birds and humans to live together in harmony.
