MORE ABOUT THE REPORT

Coming out October 2019, a new study from National Audubon

Society scientists builds on Audubon’s 2014 Birds and Climate

Change Report that revealed climate change is the number

one threat to birds. Audubon’s scientists continued to closely

analyze this relationship using the latest climate science research

methods and modeling, while significantly expanding their pool of

data sources and bird records to capture a deeper, more extensive

analysis of the effects of climate change on North American birds

species. The latest report shows that North American birds are

more vulnerable than ever from rising temperatures and climate related

events like sea level rise, Great Lakes water level changes,

droughts, fires, and extreme weather. The good news is that our

science also shows that if we take action now we can improve the

chances for the majority of species at risk from climate change.

Our birds are telling us that it’s time to act now.
