Support the young birders in their upcoming birdathon & Port Moody is one step closer to banning rodenticides!

Young Birders Joshua Brown, Bridget Spencer, Liron Gerstman and Cole Gaerber are raising money to support conservation programs by Bird Studies Canada this Thursday in Delta for the Great Canadian Birdathon. 

They have asked me to join them and I have of course said yes. When they were little I used to drive them to each stop for the birdathon in the Okanagan. It is nice to see them using bikes and being so mindful of the environment. Also all the money raised will help the birds in the Fraser IBA. This will especially be helpful for migrating shorebirds and for the fight against the proposed Delta Port 2 expansion project.

If you are able to donate please do so HERE

Thanks for your support of the young birders and bird conservation in Canada.

Also the City of Port Moody is voting on a motion to ban rodenticides on city property on Sept 8th. Councillor Meghan Lahti brought forth the motion after I wrote her. If you are in support of this motion and do not want owls and raptors and mammals to continue to die from secondary rodenticide poisoning please send an email of support to council@portmoody.ca which goes to the mayor and city council!
