Inspiring Preservation And Conservation Of Wildlife.

At Wildlife Freedom Foundation, Inc. we believe in a future where people and animals can and will live in harmony, caring for stray animal populations in NYC as well as to advocate to prevent and end all forms of cruelty toward animals.

Wildlife Freedom Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization 501 (c)(3) formed for the purpose of protecting and conserving wildlife and caring for stray animal populations in NYC.
Among other causes, WFF works to control and reduce the population of stray cats through the TNR, and then get them adopted when possible; to provide care for stray cats who are not adopted or adoptable; to advocate to prevent and end ALL forms of cruelty towards animals.

 

Roosevelt Island is part of The Atlantic Flyway, which many migrating birds use to reach warmer climates.  Please put decals on your windows or please draw blinds. Please make your windows visible to birds.

Some Facts:

Each migration season, twice a year, nearly one-third of the bird species found in the United States, from 30 Warblers species to raptors, die by colliding with building. Roosevelt Island is not immune from this problem.
Every year on Roosevelt Island, dozens and dozens of birds are either stunned, seriously injured or killed by these collisions.

Architects around the world have created fantastic bird friendly structures that incorporate little or no exposed glass i.e. NY Times building in NYC (by FX Fowle and Renzo Piano). However, designing a new structure to be bird friendly does not need to add much to the cost of construction. There are many different solutions. Wildlife Freedom Foundation, Inc. will submit some suggestions to both Cornell Tech and Related in order to promote sustainable bird-friendly construction on Roosevelt Island.
An immediate “Quick Fix” for everyone:
ABC BirdTape to make home windows safer for birds. Decals.
It is an easy-to-apply tape that lets birds see glass while letting you see out, is easily applied.
