AOU Endorses Bird Friendly® Coffee Certification

Recommended Posts



The AOU joins leading bird conservation organizations including the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory in supporting the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center’s Bird Friendly® Coffee certification. This certification recognizes 100% organic coffee produced on farms with an overstory shade cover that provides vital habitat for migratory and resident birds in tropical landscapes, which are increasingly threatened by deforestation. The Bird Friendly® criteria are the world’s most stringent standards for shade-grown coffee production. Companies that sell and distribute coffee with the Bird Friendly® seal of approval contribute 25 cents per pound to support the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center's research and conservation programs.
