Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) Canada
The Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) was born 25 years ago out of a desire to prevent night-migrating birds from flying into the lights shining from office towers. FLAP soon learned that window collisions during the day far eclipsed the night-time issue…both in homes and corporate buildings. Since then all our efforts have been poured into protecting migratory birds from the life-threatening dangers of human-created environments.
Through tireless advocacy and community engagement, and thanks to our network of devoted volunteers, FLAP Canada has accumulated invaluable data on the bird/building collision issue both during the day and night. Through strong partnerships,we are developing municipal and national standards and policies, and helping to create effective bird-collision deterrent solutions.
