Millions of people value Florida's coastal beaches and saltmarshes as special places in which to live and play. Our coastlines also provide irreplaceable habitat for nesting sea turtles and millions of birds to nest, rest, and feed throughout each year. Sea level rise is already evident along our eroding coastlines, and a number of bird species are at risk of significant declines due to drastic shifts in their breeding or winter distributions.
We need your help taking these messages to the public and to public decision makers throughout Florida. Learn more about birds and wildlife living in coastal areas and how to protect their habitat in the face of sea level rise. Let's plan for climate change and make sure our response to sea level rise helps - rather than harms - Florida's coastal wildlife.
