Climate change is affecting the places that birds need to survive. Audubon's Survival By Degrees report shows that two-thirds of North American bird species could face extinction if we fail to slow the rate of global temperature rise. That's why we support common-sense solutions to reducing carbon emissions, including conserving and restoring forests, wetlands, and grasslands that provide important habitat for birds and serve as natural solutions for storing carbon, and investing in responsibly sited clean energy.

The Audubon Guide to Climate Action
From community science observations to in-depth research from our staff scientists, Audubon applies its cutting-edge science in conservation, mitigation, and adaptation efforts across the United States and into Central and South America, where many of North America’s climate-sensitive birds spend their winters.

Clean Energy Initiative
Transitioning to clean energy is critical for birds and people because it will help to reduce pollution, slow the rise in global temperatures, and preserve the places that climate-vulnerable birds need to survive. That’s why Audubon strongly supports strategies and projects that deliver clean energy and transmission while also avoiding, minimizing, and mitigating negative impacts on birds and other wildlife. We also weigh in on permitting policies for species protected by longstanding federal laws.
Climate change affects regions and communities in different ways. That's why Audubon staff, state offices, chapters, and members are working to advance climate policy and planning on the local, state, national, and hemispheric levels. With nearly two dozen state programs, chapters in all 50 states, and international teams focusing on Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada, Audubon has the presence and committed membership to act on climate in communities across the hemisphere.
