Bird population declines present a significant threat to ecosystems. Passionate about conserving birds and nature, Western PhD candidate Brendon Samuels inspires others to participate in solutions for the biodiversity crisis.
Find out how humans are contributing to avian population declines, how this trend negatively impacts nature and climate change resiliency, and about Brendon's research on bird-window collisions at Western and work in the broader community to mitigate this problem.
