Fundraising for important communication projects, like Lights Out Cleveland, has gotten specific companies downtown to agree to turn out their lights during migration so that birds will not be hurt so much.
We agreed that a robust monitoring program was necessary to document the impact of lit buildings on the migration through Cleveland. The information gathered from this program could be used to convince building owners that the threat is real and action required.
