View up-to-date information and keep track of WBFI’s response to this crisis.
As you know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. It is a national emergency. States and municipalities are taking action in a variety of ways, but the message is clear. Flatten the curve, let the healthcare system catch up.
The spread of the virus has altered business, travel and everyday life for all of us. A large number of companies in the backyard bird feeding industry are coping with trying to keep their staff safe, while facing the mounting economic pressures. The WBFI leadership team is dedicated to working with our industry partners to provide reliable information and develop creative ways to support members as they strive for balance.
At this time, there is no way to predict the full impact this situation will have on the bird feeding industry and the world. The most important thing that we can do is stay informed in this rapidly changing environment.
