Image of the Day: Pink Flamingos Don’t Party Over Climate

Climate change could spell trouble for wading birds such as flamingos that depend on shallow coastal wetlands for food. As sea level rises, wetlands will have to adapt, migrating inland or to higher elevations. But if sea level rises too quickly, the wetlands will drown, eliminating a crucial environment that supports thousands of species and protects us from the effects of hurricanes and flooding.
