Why does Bird-Friendly Coffee Matter?
"To me, the top three threats to birds overall are habitat loss, habitat loss, and habitat loss," says Ken Rosenberg of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. "We're losing the battle acre by acre."
Research points to loss of habitat and traditional coffee farms in the Americas as being a major contributor to the alarming decline in migratory songbird populations.
Where can I get Bird-Friendly Coffee?
We recommend Birds and Beans, a brand that many Audubon chapters support, and which is certified Bird-Friendly by the Smithsonian.
Wholesale Coffee Club
GEAS is interested in starting a Coffee Club with Birds and Beans, which would enable us to order coffee at wholesale prices directly from the company. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in leading the coffee club as a volunteer, or if you are just interested in being notified when the coffee club is ready to take orders.
