A man who has dedicated himself to preserving Saskatchewan’s bird population says anyone can help out.
Lorne Scott started building bird houses when he was 15 and had set out 2-thousand nest boxes by 1975.
The former MLA for Indian Head-Wolsely says four out of five species on the Prairies continue to decline with the loss of habitat due to projects like the Regina Bypass and expanding cities.
He says endangering and altering the landscape is a bigger problem in southern Saskatchewan than the Amazon rainforest and coral reefs.
Scott points to a stark increase in the tree swallow population due to the availability of more bird houses.
