Audubon Climate Report and the Future of North American Birds

MAY 17, 2016

 

Monthly meeting at 18118 Sherman Way

(See directions above):  Dave Weeshoff is the Conservation Chair, Past-President,  and Chair of the Classroom Education Program of the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society.  He is also a frequent guest speaker to adult and children's group's on avian and environmental issues for International Bird Rescue,  Heal the Bay as well as the Audubon Society.  He has spoken several times to the San Fernando Valley Sierra Club Group  and is a Life Member of the Sierra Club.

 

Come and hear his talk:  "Audubon Climate Report and the Future of North American Birds".  In the Fall of 2014 the National Audubon Society announced the results of a long term study that addressed the potential effects of climate change on North American Birds.   He will present the methodology and results of that study and how each of us can address the serious anticipated consequences to birds of a warming environment if as a society we wait or do nothing.

There will be socializing and refreshments.

Protecting Utah (picture of Zion Ntional Park--Utah)

Jim Hines is chair of the California/Nevada Wildlife team  & Co-Chair of the Wilderness Team.   These are  teams of Sierra Club staff and volunteer activists which work on developing, organizing and carrying out Sierra Club campaigns to protect wildlife & wilderness in California and Nevada and marine mammal issues offshore of California.

Jim will show beautiful pictures of numerous public wilderness lands that have been saved through Sierra Club campaigns.  You will see colorful rock formations in places like Utah and pristine lakes, waterfalls and wonderful ocean and coastal views.   The Sierra Club is, also, responsible for helping to rescue endangered wildlife from extinction and he will show the pictures of these land and ocean animals in their habitats and tell their stories.

Some of this owl family died of anticoagulant rodenticide(AR) poisoning probably after eating a poisoned rodent.   Owls need to live so they can eat rodents and cull their numbers in a natural way.

This bobcat (ABOVE) died a year after this picture of mange and it had anticoagulant rodenticide in its blood.  It probably ate AR infected rodents.

This Mt. Lion died and had anticoagulant rodenticide(AR) in her blood

Here is P-22, who could be named Mr. Hollywood, posing near the Hollywood sign in Griffith Park. 

 

Later he was captured for a checkup and they noticed he had mange and that he had anticoagulant rodenticide in his blood.  They managed to cure him.
