Some of the biggest names in hunting and fishing recognize the urgent need to address climate change. Organizations, including Ducks Unlimited and BASS/ESPN Outdoors, came together to address how climate change affects sportsmen and outdoorsmen. These groups coauthored a report called “Beyond Seasons’ End: A Path Forward for Fish and Wildlife in the Era of Climate Change.”(1) The report explores how climate changes, such as sea level rise, droughts and intense storms, affect waterfowl, fish, birds and big game.(2)
Climate change affects hunters and anglers
“Beyond Seasons’ End” identifies how and where climate change affects sport in the great outdoors. Threatened animals range from big game to freshwater fish. Read key findings from the report in the gallery below.
Hunters and anglers already see signs of climate change in western U.S.
This video from “Beyond Seasons’ End” takes a stark look at how changing climate affects great Western locations in the U.S., such as Yosemite National Park and the Rocky Mountains, and how these changes threaten animals including salmon and sage grouse.
