Nearly 200 species of birds found in North Carolina are at risk because of the damaging effects of climate change. If we don’t take action now many of those birds might be gone forever.
Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change Report found that 1 in 5 of our birds in the continental US and Canada are at risk of suffering severe declines by 2050 without immediate action to reverse climate change. That is within our children’s lifetime. But armed with this science, we have an opportunity to create a different outcome.
Audubon is sounding the warning bell, and we are inviting everyone to join us. The time is now to make real and lasting change for the future – for birds, for ourselves and for generations to come.
All of Audubon’s work in North Carolina to protect habitats and birds, to drive public policy and to engage citizens becomes even more important as birds are forced to make changes while adapting to the effects of climate change. It will take all of us acting together to secure a better future for the birds we care about.
TAKE THE PLEDGE AND JOIN US TO PROTECT NORTH CAROLINA’S BIRDS.
Our Birds Are At Risk
Climate change is affecting many of the birds we love. Among the species listed as climate threatened or endangered are the Brown-headed Nuthatch, Wood Thrush, American Oystercatcher and many more. Learn about a few of the birds and our work to protect them.
Birds are stepping up once again to be our watchdog and to give us hope. Climate change can seem like such a large and daunting issue, but birds can show us the way to solutions and motivate us to change. It’s not too late.
