Travelerís Assistance for the Migratory Bird
Try to eliminate the use of pesticides. Raptors may feast upon animals that have eaten or been infected with pesticides. If the concentration of pesticides becomes high, the raptorís journey ends in death.

Roadblocks and accidents cause problems for long-distance travelers.; Migratory birds often run into problems on the their journeys, too. Some collide with tall buildings, communication towers, and windmills in newly developed areas along their migration route. Support placement of towers in non-migratory corridors.
By aiding these birds during their journey, you can make a difference in the success of their trip.
