Climate change is already affecting birds in North Carolina, and the 2014 Audubon Birds & Climate Change Report predicts that 170 North Carolina bird species will be threatened by climate change in our children’s lifetimes. Kim Brand, who leads Audubon North Carolina’s new Audubon Ambassadors volunteer program, shares the impact of climate change on North Carolina birds, such as the Wood Thrush and the Brown-headed Nuthatch, and shares what you can do in your yard and in your community to help birds thrive as their world changes around them.
