The reclusive wood thrush dwells in the untouched mature forests along the route of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Loss or fragmentation of these mature woodlands can contribute to the decline of wood thrush—fragmented habitats may offer poorer food or expose nests to predators such as raccoons, jays, crows, and to the brown-headed cowbird, which is a nest parasite.
If the pipeline is built, it will cut a 600 mile gash through this forest habitat and jeopardize more than 500 streams and rivers.
Please speak out for wood thrush and so many more wildlife that depend on deep forest habitat and clean water. Send a message to officials in Virginia, opposing certifications for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
