Our Partners

These cities are working towards becoming part of Bird Friendly Cities.

National Advisory

We have established a National Advisory Panel for the Bird Friendly City program to provide Nature Canada with advice and guidance to assure program excellence, rigour and innovation. Our panel members have expertise in a wide range of topics related to birds, including key human-related threats to birds, urban ecology, engagement, outreach and education, and municipal governance. Panel members represent a wide geographical coverage. We will be adding new panel members to have as broad a diversity of perspectives as we can.

Current panel members include:

  • Jody Allair (Birds Canada)
  • Timothy Beatley (University of Virginia)
  • Amélie Faucon-Borduas (Quebec Oiseaux)
  • Julie Bourque (CWS)
  • Mark Butler (Nature Canada, Halifax)
  • Dustin Carey (FCM)
  • Ted Cheskey (chair, Nature Canada)
  • Andrés Jiménez (Birds Canada)
  • Michael Mesure (FLAP)
  • Amy Wilson (UBC, Veterinarian)
