In the past several years, Oregon has faced historic wildfires which have devastated people and communities, heat waves that harmed wildlife and overwhelmed animal care centers, and severe drought, which is only predicted to get worse. After experiencing this summer’s heat dome across the region, it is no wonder that climate change remains the biggest threat to our environment, wildlife, and communities.
So where do we go from here? How do we turn our care and concern into action?
Together with experts Dr. Erica Fleishman, director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, and Lynn Tompkins, executive director of Blue Mountain Wildlife, we’ll discuss the recent heatwaves, how they impacted forests and wildlife, and what we can do to combat climate change, restore fragile ecosystems, and support wildlife care centers and their incredible work to protect injured animals.
