Seattle the Newest 'Urban Bird Treaty City'
"In a new environmental action by the Jet City, officials in Seattle have committed to protecting the 'Pacific Flyway' — the route migratory birds take from Alaska to Mexico, on which Seattle is a stopover," according to an article by Paige Browning.
In signing a treaty to become an Urban Bird Treaty City, Seattle has agreed to work with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Seattle Audubon to protect bird habitats. San Francisco, Portland, and Anchorage have already signed the treaty.
