Andrea Jones presents: "Predicting How California Birds Will Be Impacted by Global Warming"

Andrea Jones will discuss the research recently released by National Audubon describing how North American birds are predicted to be impacted by climate change.

Specifically, she will discuss the science and how Audubon scientists created models to predict future ranges of almost 600 species of North American birds and how they will fare in the future under predicted global warming scenarios. Andrea will focus on California birds and in particular birds in the Los Angeles Basin. She will discuss how Audubon will use this research to help guide its conservation work going forward and how local people can help ensure that birds have a chance for survival as conditions change.

Andrea Jones is the Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon California. Andrea leads our coastal programs and works with staff and the network of Audubon chapters across the state to implement conservation projects at high priority Important Bird Areas (IBAs). She oversees our efforts in priority bird species and serves as a spokeswoman for bird conservation across California. Prior to California, Andrea worked at Massachusetts Audubon where she served as the Director of the Coastal Waterbird Program. Andrea received her M.S. in Wildlife Conservation/Ornithology and her B.S. in Wildlife Biology and Management from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is a past board member and continues to volunteer for her local Audubon chapter, Morro Coast Audubon Society.
