Re. helping birds: The course points out how terrible climate change is for birds (and for course for humans and all species too). One of the most important things we can do for birds and for all living creature is to help stop climate change. We need to demand our elected officials and corporations take real action and we need to take our own individual actions too. Each of us should be getting solar or wind energy; we should be driving less often and when we we do drive we should be driving small cars and the most efficient cars possible; and we should stop or at least drastically cut down on our air travel--we should leave the flying to the birds!
