TEXAS WILDLIFE

On our way to be a
Bird City Texas!

In 2022 Brownsville has been diligently working to become a Bird City Texas designation and will apply to become officially certified from Audubon Texas, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s inaugural Bird City Texas certification program.

WHAT IS A BIRD CITY?

This community-focused certification program was created to help people protect birds and their habitats where we live, work, and recreate.

WHERE BIRDS THRIVE, PEOPLE PROSPER

From urban centers to rural towns, each community can provide critical habitats for birds, and certified communities will receive recognition and community benefits from these efforts.

PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT

The criteria required to attain certification are designed to be impactful and efficient against habitat loss and other harmful factors impacting birds.
