How is Climate Change Affecting NH’s Wildlife Right Now?
CONCORD, N.H. -- What is the connection between NH’s declining moose populations and the skimpy shrimp catch off NH’s coast in the last two years? And what is happening to NH’s birds? Join conservation planners, wildlife enthusiasts, and neighbors in this workshop hosted by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and National Wildlife Federation. Hear from expert biologists on the health trends of moose, shrimp and birds and the connection with climate change. Learn about the N.H. Ecosystems and Wildlife Climate Change Plan to help better manage wildlife in our changing climate. Find out how you can help monitor N.H.’s natural resources through phenology, the study of plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by climate variations.
Three sessions to choose from: May 12 in Hanover; May 22 in Auburn, and May 28 in Concord (details below). Everyone interested in wildlife is welcome! Bring a co-worker, friend, neighbor or family member! These workshops are FREE.
