Each spring, birders in North Carolina wait eagerly to hear the melodious song of the Wood Thrush ringing out across forests and leafy clearings. Unfortunately, habitat fragmentation and other threats have caused U.S. populations to decline by more than 60 percent in the last five decades, and the species is also threatened by climate change…

This film from the Climate Listening Project tells the story of the partnership between North Carolina and Belize to protect the bird on two continents amid a changing climate.
