The Jack Miner Migratory Bird Foundation™

Welcome to
The Jack Miner Migratory Bird Foundation

(cookies and Javascript must be enabled)
Jack Miner became the founder of the Migratory Waterfowl Refuge System by establishing the Jack Miner Migratory Bird Sanctuary in 1904. It is located in Kingsville, Ontario, Canada. Five years later he pioneered the banding of migrating waterfowl; the recovery data was instrumental in the establishment of the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1916 between the United States of America and Canada as no government banding programs had been in existence at that time.

The Jack Miner Migratory Bird Foundation was established in 1931 in the United States and in 1936 in Canada to continue the legacy of Jack Miner. The Foundation is a charitable organization that operates solely on grants and through the generosity of private and corporate Donors. The Board of Directors and staff are responsible for the ongoing operations of the Foundation.

For more information on the Jack Miner Migratory Bird Foundation or the Sanctuary, please contact the Executive Director.

Thank you!



We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters during the National Wildlife Week Festival. We would first like to thank our partners and sponsors for being a part of the event. We would also like to thank all of our volunteers who worked countless hours preparing for the events as well as helping out during the events. Lastly we`d like to thank all of our visitors who came out on the weekend and who helped support the Foundation. We certainly appreciate all the support from our community and couldn`t have done it without you!
