Lecture by Bendedikt Heger, 13.6., 17 h

Every year, hundreds of thousands of birds die in collisions with glass panes in Austria alone. B.Sc, M.sc. Benedikt Heger from the Vienna Environmental Advocacy’s Office explains why this is so, where the danger is particularly great, and what can be done about it. On behalf of the Vienna Environmental Advocacy’s Office, a wide variety of patterns have been examined for several years to determine their suitability for preventing bird collisions: stripes, dots, lettering, or grid patterns. One thing in advance: the often-used bird of prey silhouettes are unfortunately ineffective. But there are many structural, protective, and immediate measures.
