Webinar: Climate Change Impacts on Wildlife

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 12:00 to 13:00

Climate change in the Great Lakes region & beyond is expected to shift the ranges & phenology of well-known plant & 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 will cover:
- 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

The webinar is free. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with log-in information.
