A recording of this program will be available by April 6th.
Changing climates impact wildlife in diverse ways that we are struggling to understand. Some climatic changes are gradual, causing species to shift their ranges, activity patterns, or migration behavior. Other climatic changes are volatile, which can cause population extinctions. For many species, climate impacts are compounded by changes in other factors, such as habitat quality, quantity, and connectivity. This presentation will consider ways that changing climates are affecting wildlife now and effects we can anticipate as climate change continues. Examples include diverse butterflies, bees, fish, amphibians, birds, and mammals. It will conclude with ways we can help mitigate climate impacts, on individual and societal levels, to allow many wildlife to endure into a climate-altered future.
