Climate Change Is Threatening Our Birds

Audubon's Bird and Climate Change Report, published in September 2014, confirmed that climate change is the single greatest threat to North American birds. Seven years in the making, the report warns that 314 North American bird species could lose more than half of their current ranges by 2080 due to rising temperatures.

On March 12, 2017, Lynsy Smithson-Stanley gave a presentation on the Audubon Climate Initiative. In her presentation, she explained how Audubon scientists analyzed data related to how climate-driven changes in the environment are affecting birds and their ability to survive.  She also gave us strategies for how we, as citizens, can help protect our birds.   Read her presentation here.
