The Audubon Ohio Birdathon will be held on May 10th, and this year has a new and exciting twist: a carbon conscious Birdathon. Members of our staff will be birding only from locations that they can reach on foot, by bicycle or using public transportation. By doing so, we will limit the amount of fossil fuels we burn and the pollution and greenhouse gas they produce, which are major contributors to global warming.
This year, we'll also be posting details as we go through a carbon conscious day search for birds, so you can follow our progress as we go. Check back to this site to hear all about it .
By taking on the challenge of a carbon conscious Birdathon, we will be doing our part to help reduce fossil fuel consumption in order to protect wildlife and ecosystems that are at risk from mining, drilling, deforestation and development as well as reducing air and water pollution.
