Migratory Birds Threatened By Everything From Development To Climate Change by WBEZ’s Worldview


Worldview recently aired the final episode of a four-part BBC series, Life and Loss on the East Asian Highway. It followed the dangerous, and sometimes fatal, migration of millions of birds from “Australasia” and Southeast Asia to Alaska and the Russian Arctic. We talk with Amanda Rodewald, Garvin Professor and director of Conservation Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology at Cornell University, which partnered with the BBC for the series. She tells us how climate change, urban sprawl and other threats endanger these birds and birds in the Midwest region.
