States’ Status

Wildlife Habitat Impacts Online




The National Wildlife Federation has developed global warming fact sheets for all 50 states, plus the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, that show what effects climate change is having on local wildlife and what citizens can do to help. Fact sheets zero in on the relation of the environment to each region’s economy and what’s at stake. More, they suggest practical steps toward solutions.
