Local wildlife reaction to extreme cold

The wildlife of Door County has many different ways to endure the extreme cold weather. Some animals are able to hunker down and lower their body temperatures and just wait out the cold. Some have to eat a lot to be able to survive. Coggin Heeringa, the Director of Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay, says the well-below zero temperatures makes things really tough on the wildlife and the trees in Door County. According to Heeringa, ways to help out is to keep your birdfeeders full and cleared of snow.


Heeringa added that trees can be greatly impacted by the extreme temperature fluctuations and expects that many will be damaged in this time.
