BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- Bird conservation is the focus of a project starting soon in Brunswick County.

The Cape Fear Audubon Society and Early College High School held a luncheon Tuesday to kick off "Project Bird."

Bird centers in schools allow students to learn about animals and taking care of them.

"The welfare of our birds is an indication of welfare of us, our survival. And if we lose our birds, we lose diversity. We lose our existence basically. It sounds extreme but it's true," said Charley Winterbauer, Cape Fear Audobon Society president.

This is the fifth annual Project Bird event.

Early College ninth and tenth grade students will work with local elementary students to record bird observations.
