To save birds, we need to save their habitats. But birds have wings, can't read maps, and don't stay where they're safe. So how can we create a more bird friendly world beyond parks and refuges? We need to know how they die. What kills birds tells us where we can make changes to prevent bird deaths in the future. Explore the preventable causes of avian mortality that put so much pressure on the birds we know and love, and learn about how valuable dead birds are to science.
