Leading National Bird Organization Calls for NFL Commitment to Reduce Bird Mortality at New Vikings Stadium

Recommended Posts

(Washington, D.C., July 30, 2014) American Bird Conservancy (ABC), one of the nation’s leading bird conservation organizations, has asked National Football League (NFL) officials in Washington, D.C., to modify plans for the soon-to-be-built Minnesota Vikings Stadium in Minneapolis, which features expanses of glass expected to kill thousands of birds over time.


ABC asked for a meeting with the NFL via a July 29, 2014 letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The request comes after the refusal of the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority to invest about one-tenth of one percent of the stadium cost to make the recommended adjustments to the installation.
