Safe Skies Maryland is an initiative to raise awareness in all counties in Maryland about the threats of migratory and resident bird collisions with man-made structures and how we might employ science and technology to solve our conservation needs.

This initiative seeks to address the preservation of biodiversity in a changing world, to enhance the habitat and protection of resident and migratory birds through a comprehensive understanding of the emerging challenges that threaten their survival, and to address sustainable growth for the next generation.  Educational, community, and legislative outreach and goals make the initiative comprehensive in it’s vision.
