South Atlantic LCC-funded study that produced beach birds indicator published earlier this year

Earlier this year, Dr. Betsy von Holle and her colleagues published a study in the Journal of Wildlife Management about the effects of sea-level rise on coastal nesting species. The paper is open access, so you can read it for free here: https://wildlife.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jwmg.21633. The study shows that sea-level rise is increasing the vulnerability of the [...]

Sure, there will continue to be local actions like living shorelines, hardening, and elevating buildings, but people are also very mobile. How many people might leave coastal areas entirely and where might they go? [...]
