Balzac’s is delighted to partner with Canadian author and bird lover Margaret Atwood in creating a Smithsonian Institute certified BIRD FRIENDLY® blend to help raise funds and awareness for Canada’s Pelee Island Bird Observatory (PIBO).
PELEE ISLAND BIRD OBSERVATORY
Situated in the western end of Lake Erie, PIBO is a non profit organization devoted to the study & conservation of migratory birds. PIBO’s purpose is to collect and disseminate data that will help understand changes taking place in the populations of migratory birds.
The Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center encourages the production of shade grown coffee and the conservation of migratory birds through its BIRD FRIENDLY® seal of approval. It is the only 100% organic and shade grown certification available worldwide.
One of the world’s most prolific and award-winning authors, Margaret Atwood is truly a Canadian treasure. Her deep commitment to the environment and concern for avian ecosystems make us honoured to work with her in creating this special blend.
