SEPT 14 | Petroleum Club

Texas is globally important for birds. Approximately 1 of every 3 birds migrating through the U.S. in spring, and 1 of every 4 birds migrating through the U.S. in the fall, or nearly two billion birds in total, pass through Texas. However, U.S. bird populations are declining rapidly, with 1 out of every 4 birds lost since 1970. An estimated one billion U.S. bird deaths occur annually from collisions with buildings and structures, with migratory species at most risk. Attraction and disorientation resulting from light pollution concentrate migrant birds in cities and increase the risk of collisions. The combination of enormous migratory movements of birds through Texas with intense light output from cities - particularly in the greater Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan areas - expose migratory birds to increased risk of collisions, but also present great conservation opportunities in Texas for protecting birds with just the flip of a switch. We will talk about the research behind this conservation initiative, efforts to date in 2020 and 2021, and plans for expanding efforts in 2022.
