Climate Change and the Future of Nebraskan Birds

An in-depth presentation about climate change and birds plus predictions for their future

Omaha, NE (September 10, 2019) – Audubon Nebraska’s Executive Director, Kristal Stoner, will be presenting Spreading Wings in a Changing World which focuses on the future of birds in Nebraska while predicting their response to climate change. This event will be held on Thursday, September 19, at the Kearney Public Library from 6 to 8 pm.

“People have understood for centuries that birds respond quickly to their environment,” said Stoner, “so if you watch them, you can learn what is happening around you.” 

This event will examine predictions for birds in Nebraska, look at changing trends in bird populations, explore how birds will respond to a changing climate, and how individuals can take action.

Stoner explains that “climate change is the greatest threat to birds” and because of it, people are witnessing “changes in migrations and behaviors.”  

Though these changes have caused concern for many, Stoner will also explain how people can help.

“It is important to listen to what the birds are telling us in the context of predictions by climatologists,” said Stoner. “By doing so, we can prepare for Nebraska’s future.”
