“Survival by Degrees,” Audubon’s 2019 climate report, shows that two-thirds (64%) (389 out of 604) of North American bird species are at risk of extinction from climate change. The good news is that our science also shows that if we take action now we can help improve the changes for 76% of species at risk.
Of Pine Island’s 194 bird species, 96 – nearly half – are vulnerable. Yet, there’s still time to take action to ensure that Pine Island can remain a place that birds call home. Natural infrastructure projects like the new living shoreline at Pine Island can help to migitate the effects of climate change and sea level rise.
