The Toronto Field Naturalists are leading the effort to create a bird sanctuary on Toronto Island. This is one of the most important flyways for migratory birds on the Great Lakes.
The City of Toronto Executive Committee has endorsed the bird sanctuary, which is the first step in the approvals process. The motion will go to the City Council on January 31.
The Field Naturalists are urging people to sign their petition in support of the effort. Councillor Joe Cressy will take the petition, and the names of those who have signed it, to council on the day of the debate.
I urge you to sign the petition and forward it to your friends who you think will support this effort. This is the link.
