Flock Together for the Birds on National Bird Day

Free 2008 National Bird Day Posters Available to Activists

Please join us in celebrating the sixth annual National Bird Day on January 5, 2008.

The Animal Protection Institute (API) in coordination with the Avian Welfare Coalition (AWC) is calling on activists around the United States to take action on behalf of captive birds — by drawing attention to the exploitation of native birds of other countries that occurs in the U.S. pet industry.

January 5 — National Bird Day — is a day of action for captive birds, and there’s no better time to educate the public in commemoration. There are many ways that you can get involved to benefit birds, so be sure and check out the National Bird Day website — http://www.nationalbirdday.org — to start making your plans now.

Protect Middle Island Cormorants from Lethal Culling in Canada

Currently, a public consultation is underway regarding the culling of cormorants on Middle Island in Point Pelee National Park in Ontario, Canada.

Cormorant Defenders International (CDI), a coalition of which API is a member, has been advised that if this consultation shows that the majority of people are opposed to management of the birds in this manner, they will not kill them.

The proposed mass slaughter of this magnificent waterbird must be stopped. You can help change the fate of these birds, by submitting comments on their behalf by October 31, 2007.

Please use this opportunity to speak out for cormorants today.
