New NYC Law Requires New Buildings To Have Bird-Friendly Windows

The New York City Council passed the country’s most comprehensive bird-safe glass law.

Proposed Initiative 1482B requires any new construction and certain renovations to use bird-safe materials.

According to Gizmodo, advocates for the bill hope the law will prevent bird-strike deaths.

A conservation biologist said the city is “setting an important precedent for other municipalities.” New York City sits on the Atlantic Flyway, making it a well-known spot for avian biodiversity.
