Audubon Report on Birds and Climate Change

The Audubon Society has issued a report, based upon 40 years of study in the United States, entitled “Birds and Climate Change Ecological Disruption in Motion.” The report concludes that global warming is having a significant impact on the migratory pattern of birds. It notes: “planned, science-based habitat conservation efforts will be increasingly essential to avoid a growing toll on birds and wildlife, along with the loss of a wide array of ecological benefits, from clean water supplies, insect control and seed distribution provided by birds, to travel and tourism revenues.”
