A recent report found that two-thirds of North American bird species are at risk from climate change range shifts and other threats. The good news is that the science also shows that, if we take action now, we can help improve the changes for the majority of species at risk. Join Dr. Brooke Bateman, Senior Scientist at the Audubon Society, to learn about the science behind the findings and the impact on birds in our Kansas City community.
