Death Pipes are everywhere. Any open top vertical pipe is a death trap to birds and other wildlife.
This is an invisible problem. Unlike birds colliding with buildings, windows or other structures where they remain visible and obvious to people, birds, trapped in pipes end up dying a slow death completely unnoticed in sewer systems, septic tanks and other hidden locations.
This is a widespread problem that kills millions of birds and one that individuals can work to solve with little cost and effort.
It only takes one spark on dry grass, leaves, branches or pine needles to start a wildfire. Chainsaws, dragging trailer safety chains, carelessly tossed cigarettes, fireworks, abandoned campfires, and discharge of firearms are all known causes of wildfire. Help prevent wildfires by reducing the risk of even one spark.
