Buildings with respectful glass and light with the birds

The Swiss Institute of Ornithology published, in 2014, a study titled Buildings with glass and light respectful with the birds.

In this, they bring up the risks that can present the glasses and the lights of buildings, especially regarding collisions. They expose that the main elements that cause accidents to the birds are building’s transparency, reflection of its glasses and the light in the night that cause them disorientation. Also present specific measures to avoid these risks and dangers.
