Audubon's Birds and Climate Change Report found that 314 North American bird species could lose more than half of their current ranges by 2080 due to global warming. To protect birds from the worst impacts of climate change, you can make a difference through simple actions at home, in your community, and politically at large.
David Ringer, Chief Network Office, will be delivering the keynote address on how Audubon is crafting a bipartisan movement throughout National Geographic's Year of the Bird. Hear from regional experts on steps Long Island can take to further reduce their greenhouse gas emissions along with sustaining important habitats for birds and other wildlife. Featured speakers will cover strategic conservation partnerships, effective lawmaker outreach, advancing clean energy solutions, mitigating sea level rise and more.
Learn how to become a champion for birds and the places they need, now and in the future.
