Banders Code of Ethics - Bird banding is very carefully regulated by the Canadian Wildlife Service in Canada. In order to even obtain bird bands, applicants must provide details of their research projects and obtain a banding permit. These are not issued without evidence of the value of the banding project. All of RPBO's banding projects have a licensed bander-in-charge to ensure bird safety and the integrity of the data that is collected. Bird safety is a top priority for our banders who follow the North American Banding Council's Banders' Code of Ethics.
