Pilot project (2017) - Protecting Denali Birds - Window Strike Mitigation
Window collisions are the second leading source of direct human-caused mortality of birds in the United States. Current research has also shown that the majority (99%) of these fatalities occur at low levels at residences and other low-rise buildings. Currently, we don't know how many birds are injured or killed by colliding with windows in Denali.
This project would be a pilot to install different mitigation techniques on select windows at the MSLC during 2017 to test for efficacy and consider future use of these mitigation efforts.
