A study published in Science in 2019 found that 3 billion birds have been lost since 1970. The Perpetual Notion Machine takes a look at existing and new programs to save Wisconsin’s declining bird population. Host Catherine Garvens speaks with folks from the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin about the Great Wisconsin Birdathon, which raises money for the Bird Protection Fund. We also feature two of the programs in the state that receive support from that fund–Important Bird Areas, and the SOS Save Our Songbirds program.
