Audubon's Birds and Climate Change Report
Fact: Climate Change is the #1 threat to birds in North America.
Global Warming and Climate Change
National Audubon launched a new Climate Initiative in September of 2014. We invite you to become part of it. Together, we can make a difference.
Locally, we worked with the City of Tacoma to develop strategies and recommendations for the city to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through our participation in the Green Ribbon Climate Action Task Force. The goals and strategies were adopted by the city council, resulting in the creation of a new Office of Sustainability in 2008.
