Every year as the seasons change, countless migratory birds follow the Mississippi River through downtown Minneapolis as they fly to their spring and winter homes.
But the new Minnesota Vikings football stadium currently under construction may make this area a death trap for birds—because plans for the stadium's exterior include more than 20,000 square feet of transparent glass.
That means that delicate birds, many of whom are federally protected, could sustain fatal injuries when slamming into the glass at high speeds! :(
Please urge the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority to use glass that birds can see—such as opaque, frosted, pattered, or printed varieties.
