BTO work on climate change can be divided into three main areas:

  • Documenting the impacts of climate change on biodiversity
  • Developing and using approaches for predicting future impacts of climate change to identify the most vulnerable species and habitats
  • Improving the evidence base to inform how conservation needs to adapt to climate change

Although much of our work has a UK bird focus, we also work internationally and on other taxa.

The Climate Change Appeal - informing the discussion

Our best assessment shows that failure to meet net-zero carbon risks the UK losing almost 90% of its breeding Puffins by 2050. You can help us continue research into one of the most pressing drivers of change in our natural world.
