Birds in a Changing Climate: How You Can Make a Difference
Thursday, April 14, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m at Audubon Greenwich:
Join us for a Lecture and Wine & Cheese Reception with National Audubon Society's Chief Scientist at the Audubon Center in Greenwich at 613 Riversville Road. Dr. Gary Langham will speak about Audubon's Birds and Climate Change Report , http://climate.audubon.org/ which has confirmed that climate change is the single greatest threat to North American birds.
Birds are nature's messengers, and they're broadcasting loud and clear: They are already experiencing the devastating impacts of climate change, and this danger will only grow over time. Seven years in the making, the Audubon Birds and Climate Change Report warns that 314 North American bird species could lose more than half of their current ranges by 2080 due to rising temperatures.
But there are reasons for hope. By identifying which birds are most sensitive to climate change and where those changes are most likely to occur, this research provides a road map for future conservation and advocacy efforts. You will also learn how to help birds adapt to a changing climate by planting bird-friendly habitat in your own yard and neighborhood - and discover new online tools to guide you along the way!
