National Audubon’s climate study, Survival by Degrees: 389 Species on the Brink, reports that two-thirds of North American birds are at increasing risk of extinction from global temperature rise.
The report also tells us that actions we can take will improve the chances of survival for three-quarters of the species at risk.
The Audubon report comes on the heels of an earlier study that found North America has lost more than one in four birds in the past 50 years.
