U.S. Rep. Castor & Audubon Florida Sound Alarm on the Climate Crisis’ Impact on North American Birds

Rising temperatures put 389 North American bird species on the brink of extinction.

The National Audubon Society’s new report details the devastating effects the climate crisis will have on North American bird species- 389 American bird species are at risk for extinction if warming reaches 3 degrees C. Florida species such as Roseate Spoonbill, Black Skimmer, Wood Thrush, American Redstart, and Brown Pelican are among species facing extinction due to wildfires, heat waves, and urbanization.

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL-14), Chair of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, was joined by Audubon Florida Executive Director Julie Wraithmell and members of the Tampa Audubon Society on November 5, 2019 to outline the findings in the report and the urgent steps that need to be taken to protect species in Florida and safeguard our ecosystem.
