Climate Change and Birds Near You

Audubon reports

Not all birds that live in the same place will be affected the same way. In this activity, learn about climate impacts on your local birds.

Climate change is a global problem. It’s sometimes called global warming because temperatures are rising across the entire planet. But it won’t affects birds the same way everywhere. Birds that live near the ocean are likely harmed by sea-level rise. Birds that nest in drier areas in the western United States are likely to experience more wildfire. And birds that nest in the Arctic, where they hunt in the ocean for ice-loving fish, are already being affected by melting sea ice.
