Fears for seabirds

2 posts in this topic

Puffins, terns and butterflies are among the key species in the UK being put at risk from global warming, which is transforming the UK's coastal areas as sea levels rise and storms grow fiercer, a study by the National Trust has found.

Sea levels are predicted to rise by up to half a metre by the turn of the century, and coastal erosion is accelerating, with a fourfold increase in landslips reported.

I have been watching the web cams on Seal Island off the coast of Maine and the web cams on the Shetland Islands to observe the puffins, terns, seagulls, etc., over the past few summers. It is not so much the rising sea level I worry about, but the lack of good nourishing food for the chicks and pufflings, but the rising sea level is also a big worry, as is the increase in dead zones in the ocean. These are terrible times for wildlife.
