This webinar covers climate change impacts on wildlife, specifically focusing on bird species in the United States.


Climate change in the Great Lakes region and beyond is expected to promote shifts in the ranges and phenology of well-known plant and animal species. These shifts are often a result of changes in the availability of food and shelter, as well as temperature. Knowing more about these potential impacts will help wildlife managers and nature enthusiasts alike to adapt to and potentially mitigate some of the resulting changes in wildlife diversity.

This webinar covers:

- an overview of potential climate change impacts on wildlife
- effects of a changing climate on the phenology of migratory birds
- impacts of shifting climate conditions (such as drought and flooding) on the vulnerability of species of special concern
- climate change effects on Broad-tailed Hummingbirds as a result of shifts in the timing of flowering of their nectar flowers glacier lily, dwarf larkspur, and Indian paintbrush, which they rely on during spring migration
