Iconic North American birds like the bald eagle and brown pelican are among hundreds of mankind’s feathered friends facing threats to their survival due to climate change, researchers said Tuesday. More than half of birds in the United States and Canada — a total of 314 species — are losing critical habitat and food sources as the planet warms, said a report by the National Audubon Society. Meanwhile, another annual report called the “State of the Birds 2014, USA,” issued by the 23-member US Committee of the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, described losses of as much as 46 percent of birds in deserts and drylands such as Utah, Arizona and New Mexico since the 1960s. Common backyard birds are becoming less common, and those who breed and eat in the coastal wetlands are also struggling.
Padre Island National Seashore separates the Gulf of Mexico from the Laguna Madre, one of a few hypersaline lagoons in the world. The park protects 70 miles of coastline, dunes, prairies, and wind tidal flats teeming with life. It is a safe nesting ground for the Kemp’s ridley sea turtle and a haven for 380 bird species. It also has a rich history, including the Spanish shipwrecks of 1554.

Whatever floats your boat I guess…
Before I wanted to be an actor, I dreamt about becoming a marine biologist.
