Birds & Climate Change

TRUE wireframe artI decided to do my infographic on how birds have been affected by climate changes and how it disrupts their migration. I raise awareness to the birds that are now endangered due to climate change in order to promote a healthy Earth! The climate operates the flight plans of bird migration around the world. Drastic changes in the climate disrupt migration, and if the bird does not leave its territory before deep freeze hits, they end up not making it through the winter.

THE BIRDS ARE DYING!

As the climate changes, the migration of birds and bird populations are changing. Weather operates the flight plans of bird migration around the world, and any discrepancies can cause the whole system to change. “The total number of continental landbirds stands at about 10 billion, down from about 11.5 billion in 1970.”  This is a direct result of the climate change that is happening on Earth. Certain birds migrate to escape cold weather, and if the climate stays warmer closer in the year, those birds to not migrate. Drastic changes in the climate disrupt migration, and if the bird does not leave its territory before deep freeze hits, they end up not making it through the winter.

This is the biggest concern currently, and how these birds can adjust to the drastic changes in the climate. I urge everyone to be aware of how the climate change effects the bird populations and migrations. Lets do our best to preserve the Earth’s climate.

LOVE THE BIRDS!

RESTART! I have decided to re-do my personal project. I wasn’t happy in the direction that the poster project was going so I decided to scrap it. I opted for this food magazine idea with food typography called, Melted Mag, we will see where it goes. I also brainstormed a custom font for the magazine called “Velvetica”.
