San Diego Wildlife, Climate Change, and You!

This talk is open to the public.
Speaker: Alexandria Warneke
Synopsis: Our climate is changing. We see the effects of this on a global scale- devastating storms, rising seas, ravaging wildfires. However, how does the changing climate affect us and our ecosystems right here in San Diego? This past year the Climate Science Alliance teamed up with local ecologists and climatologists to answer this very question. Reviewing the most current, regionally specific climate data with research on local South Coast species and habitats, the team presents a broad picture of risks associated with our changing climate. Come get a glimpse of what they found and more importantly – what you can do to help. Find out more about the Climate Science Alliance at: www.climatesciencealliance.org
