The only central network of organizations supporting the Wild Bird Feeding Industry.
The Wild Bird Feeding Institute’s (WBFI) marketing campaign, #FeedTheBirds is an ongoing marketing initiative to highlight the benefits of the birds feeding hobby.
This campaign focuses on the mental health benefits of bird feeding. Several studies prove birds help lower stress, anxiety, and depression. With technology becoming more pervasive, and society’s concern with mental wellness, we think interacting with birds is a natural remedy.
