Ask Minnesota Vikings to Be Kind to Birds!

finch

Every year, countless migratory birds follow the Mississippi River corridor through downtown Minneapolis en route to their spring breeding and winter foraging homes. But the new Minnesota Vikings football stadium currently under construction may make this area a death trap for birds as its planned exterior would be comprised of more than 20,000 square feet of transparent glass. Delicate birds, the vast majority being federally protected, will sustain crushing fatal injuries when slamming into this surface at great speed. But this scenario is easily preventable during building design and construction stages, so your voice is desperately needed!

Using the form below, please urge the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority to use glass that birds can see—such as etched, opaque, frosted, angled, patterned, or printed varieties. The American Bird Conservancy has myriad other tips for developers, which can be viewed here.
