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.
