Protecting Wildlife in New Haven

On Bird Collisions at Yale
Last October, the third-year student class council at Yale issued a statement on bird collisions, reminding Yale administrators that their promised commitment to sustainability and biodiversity protection has stagnated. After reaching out, students were made aware of an ongoing collaboration between the Yale Bird Community Initiative and the School of Management that has since led to the implementation of a prototyped deterrent film.
