WRAL features our collision project – FCIEMAS will be bird friendly soon!

On June 24th the local associate of CBS and Fox, WRAL, features our bird-window collision project at Duke. This is the first time on a media appearance that Duke University has made a statement. CIEMAS, the building that takes about 74% of the collisions on campus will soon be retrofitted with patterned film that will help birds recognize windows as barriers, avoiding collisions.

His blog was published in “Glass” magazine and talks about our Duke University collision project as an example of collisions that could well be prevented with the right kind of glass. At Duke, we now hope to move forward with making existing and new buildings bird friendly. Soon we hope to show you how we are preventing collisions on campus.
