A safe environment

I was walking on campus when I saw this cute cat. It was curled up in the sun, under a window, eating a dead bird.  I thought it was very smart to wait under the window for birds to kill or injure themselves on the invisible glass. I felt sad for the bird.

My friend, Leah, suggested that we put up UV film so birds could see the windows and stop flying into them. It took a long time to get approval, but UV stickers are finally being put on the windows!

These nice men are putting up the UV stickers.
What do you see? Nothing? The stickers are designed so people don't notice them, but birds do. These are the first stickers to be put up on campus. The administration ordered a lot of stickers, so there will be more soon.

If you live or work in a building that is dangerous for birds, please visit http://www.windowalert.com/ to buy the UV stickers. They aren't expensive and people don't notice them.

What do you think about this idea?


  1. I'm glad to hear that UV stickers are put on campus!
    Because I have sun allergy... (fortunately it's not so strong).
    The stickers seem good for human and birds:D

  2. I knew that Leah wanted to put the UV stickers on the windows in campus. I didn't know about the stickers before hearing Leah's idea but I thought it's really good idea. I didn't think that Jimukyoku bought them but "asking" is important. If we have any ideas for our school we should "ask" to do!

  3. I didn't know that many birds were died because of the invisible windows in campus...
    I'm so glad that jimukyoku bought stickers to solve the problem♪

    I agree with Emi♪ Giving advice and asking is really important. I hope many students will give more ideas to make our school much better!

    "Jyunko" is really cute(*^_^*)

  4. When I was in LLSR all of sudden some BIG noise scared me. I though somebody threw a ball at the window but I soon figure it out. Poor birds.
