‘The ability of the birds to show us the consequences of our own actions is
among their most important and least appreciated attributes. Despite the free
advice of the birds, we do not pay attention.’ – Marjory Stoneman Douglas,
From ice-dependent penguins of Antarctica to songbirds that migrate across the
Sahara, birds’ responses provide early warning signs of the impact of climate
change. "Winged Sentinels: Birds and Climate Change" uses colourful
examples to show how particular groups of birds face heightened threats from
climate change, and to explore how we can help birds adapt in a warming world.
Generously illustrated with colour photographs the book is a fascinating
insight into what climate change means for birds, and the potential
consequences of ignoring these warning signs.
