Songbird SOS

Songbird SOS,  Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 8 PM on CBC-TV

Can you imagine a world without birdsong? Why are songbirds declining, and what can be done to help them?

A new documentary follows birds on a visually breathtaking yet perilous journey through our changing world. SongbirdSOS was inspired by and features the work of Dr. Bridget Stutchbury. The film also offers perspectives from several additional researchers and conservationists on key threats to migratory songbirds. SongbirdSOS debuts on CBC’s The Nature of Things in March. Preview a clip highlighting Hooded Warbler migration research. Bird Studies Canada is excited to be collaborating with SongbirdSOS Productions and Films a Cinq as Canadian Outreach Partner, to connect audiences with the issues affecting bird populations and empower citizens with the information and tools to support conservation.
