Feral and free-ranging domestic cats kill billions of birds each year. To address this significant threat to birds, the leadership at BSBO initiated dialog with our partners in the Ohio Bird Conservation Initiative (OBCI) to encourage this statewide conservation collaborative to adopt a Position Statement on the issue. After months of research and discussion, the OBCI Steering Committee voted to adopt a strong position on this issue. Read the press release, HERE.
The BSBO Board voted to adopt this Position Statement as well. The Position Statement can be read in its entirety HERE.
BSBO WINS IMPORTANT DESIGNATION FOR LAKE ERIE 'S WESTERN AND CENTRAL BASINS
BSBO staff worked for weeks to compile and submit data to nominate the Western and Central Basins of Lake Erie for Globally Important Bird Areas. On May 8th, 2015, during the opening ceremonies for The Biggest Week In American Birding, Gary Langham, Chief Scientist for National Audubon Society, made the announcement that both nominations had been approved, and the Western and Central Basins became Ohio's first Globally Important Bird Areas.
Among many other benefits, these designations provide an additional layer of protection, and provide important support for land acquisition and habitat restoration grants.
