Usage Instructions

Social science research reminds us of the importance of tying the impacts of climate change to our local communities. The Birds & National Parks projection tool from the Audubon Society, helps advocates make this essential connection.

Join Dr. Chad Wilsey, Audubon’s Director of Conservation Science in a CCL training (24 m 14s) that reviews the background behind Audubon’s Birds & Climate Change Report as well as the best practices on how to incorporate it into your team’s climate advocacy.
