Climate Threat: This raptor is projected to lose 79 percent of current summer range by 2080, according to Audubon’s climate model. While it has expanded potential to live year-round in places like Florida, it’s uncertain whether this fish-eater will be able to find enough food in stable and expanded portions of its range, or how sea-level rise will affect its success in coastal areas.
