Citizen Science project - Climate Watch.
HSV Audubon is active in the new citizen science program that explores how birds are responding to climate change, National Audubon's Climate Watch.
Climate change is the biggest threat to birds around the world. You can help by counting climate-threatened species. Over half of North American bird species will lose more than 50 percent of their current climatic range by 2080, according to Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change Report.
We Need Volunteers! (oops...all positions are filled for now)
Climate Watch aims to document species’ responses to climate change. HSV Audubon will participate by tracking and reporting on:
- bluebirds and nuthatches
- teams of 2 people, 6 locations for each team
- total 48 specific locations (most are on a golf course)
- stay for 5 minutes at each location
- twice a year
Carolyn Minson, Program Coordinator for HSV Audubon, will gladly answer questions at the next meeting or fill out the form below or call 501-984-1210.
