Dialogue Awareness Activism

BIRDLINK invites you to experience your city as a place hospitable to people, and wildlife. and offers an answer to the “what can I do?” question. It builds upon current work designing for ecological challenges to maintain biodiversity. BIRDLINK is an experiment in restoring wildlife habitat using a landscape network strategy that connects isolated habitat across scales. This can make communities and wildlife more resilient to climate and other changes.
