St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The National Audubon Society held a demonstration at Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton's office today to kick off its campaign against the Vikings Stadium's windows.
The Audubon Society believes the current window glass in the Vikings stadium is going to bring about the death of thousands of birds.
The society advocates believe the stadium should switch to a glass called frittev glass.
They say that would reduce bird collisions by 75% or more. The Audubon Society delivered petitions to the Governor's Office that included 73,000 supporters of frittev glass.
The society points out the Stadium Authority announced $46 million in cost overruns that the Vikings covered, but the team did not provide the extra $1 million that would cover the cost of the bird–safe glass.
The society is working on calculating the number of birds that will hit the building's windows and die.
