Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change Report predicts that over half of North American bird species will lose more than 50 percent of their current climatic range by 2080.
To test these predictions, Audubon has been running a new community science project, Climate Watch, since January. Climate Watch aims to document species’ responses to climate change by having volunteer community scientists in the field look for birds where Audubon’s climate models project they should be in the 2020’s, giving us an understanding on how birds respond to a changing climate.
There’s still time to get involved. If you would like to find out more about being a volunteer or how to coordinate in
your area, please contact the Audubon Climate Watch Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
