The Mike and Mary Stark Grizzly Ridge area of the zoo highlights North America’s native species including grizzly bears, North American river otters, red wolves, coyotes, and one of AZA’s largest North American songbird aviaries, which was established in 2013.
Did you know that you can reduce or eliminate window strikes just by moving your feeders? Bird feeders should be either less than 3 feet from a window or more than 30 feet. Birds using feeders very close to a window don’t have the room to gather enough speed to cause harm if a strike occurs. And those feeding far away generally can recognize that your windows are a part of a building!
Practice what you preach. It’s likely we have all spoken these words from time to time. The Ohio Division of Wildlife northeast Ohio headquarters in Summit County brought this expression to life in order to protect our beloved birds -with bonus protections of a wide array of other species too. Three significant projects on our property launched us into the modern conservation trend of turning human-induced establishments into nature-friendlier formations.
