Location: Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Avenue, Livermore CA 94550
Meeting Room: Palo Verde
Presenter: Juan Pablo
Audubon’s new science shows that two-thirds (64%) (389 out of 604) of North American bird species are at risk of extinction from climate change. The good news is that our science also shows that if we take action now we can help improve the chances for 76% of species at risk. MDAS Young Birders Club Coordinator Juan Pablo Galván will present Audubon’s new report on the impacts of climate change on birds. He’ll also show the drastic impacts that climate change is already having on the Bay Area and other parts of the world, attempt to explain why it’s been so difficult to make progress against a drastically warmer climate caused by humans, and make a provocative case for who is responsible for this tragedy. Most importantly, every person in the audience and everywhere on the planet must ACT NOW to prevent catastrophic climate change.
Juan Pablo runs the MDAS young Birders Club. He grew up in Benicia, but since high school has lived and worked in Costa Rica, Mexico, Washington D.C. and different parts of California. Juan Pablo has always loved animals and been interested in learning about and protecting them and the habitats they live in – even since kindergarten when he brought an octopus in for show and tell. Juan Pablo graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.S. in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution and a minor in Political Science. Then after working in Mexico for a year, he pursued an M.S. in Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology at the University of Maryland, College Park. He’s been back and forth between Mexico, Sacramento, and other places, but has lived in the Bay Area the past six years hiking the mountains and checking out the beaches.
