Look at Milwaukee Bucks Bird-Safe Stadium


Bucks Stadiums
Fiserv Forum

In a groundbreaking move toward environmental consciousness, the Milwaukee Bucks have made history with the Fiserv Forum.


Set to be the world’s first bird-friendly sports and entertainment venue in 2018. This achievement marks a significant milestone for the Bucks but also holds immense promise for bird conservation and pest control.

Every year 1 billion birds die in the United States due to collisions with glass. This is about 5 to 10 percent of the nation's bird population.


The Bucks organization's decision to prioritize bird-friendly design for their arena is a commendable act of care to the environmen. By integrating bird collision deterrence measures into the construction of Fiserv Forum, the Bucks are setting a new standard for sports franchises worldwide.


The 17,500-seat Fiserv Forum, situated in the heart of Milwaukee, meets the requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program. The arena earned the Bird Collision Deterrence credit (SSpc55), a testament to the Bucks' dedication to mitigating the hazards from glass and lighting to migratory birds.


This collaboration from Bird City Wisconsin and the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) the Bucks intend to make a happier and healthier facility for patrons and wildlife. Fiserv Forum's bird safe design include strategic glass, lighting to cut bird collisions and ongoing monitoring by the Wisconsin Humane Society.


The journey toward creating the world’s first bird-friendly arena began in 2015 when Bird City Wisconsin approached the Bucks with the idea. Since then, a coalition of organizations and stakeholders has worked tirelessly to turn this vision into reality.


Beyond its environmental impact, Fiserv Forum's bird-friendly design aligns with broader sustainability initiatives embraced by the Bucks. From landscaping with native plants to implementing composting programs, the arena exemplifies the team's holistic approach to reducing its environmental footprint.


Looking ahead, the Bucks aim to inspire others in the sports industry to prioritize bird conservation. By sharing their experiences and lessons learned, they hope to catalyze similar initiatives worldwide and foster a culture of environmental responsibility.


Ultimately, the Milwaukee Bucks' commitment to creating a bird-friendly arena transcends sports—it represents a transformative step forward in the intersection of sports, sustainability, and conservation. As the first of its kind, Fiserv Forum stands as a beacon of hope and a testament to what can be achieved when we prioritize the well-being of our planet's inhabitants, both human and avian alike.
