Climate Change on Animals

What Climate Change can do to our animals!

What is Climate Change

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time. Climate is usually defined as "average weather" because it is based on the patterns of seasons. Climate change plays a big role in shaping our earth's ecosystems and the human economies and cultures depend on them. A climate change can effects how humans, plants and animals live by our food production, how much water we have and even health risks.

What Climate Change does to our ecosystems/animals

Climate change can effect our animals tremendously meaning that if change where to happen than these animals won't have access to easy resources such as water or even an ecosystem to have around. Climate variability and change affects birdlife and animals in a number of ways; birds lay eggs earlier in the year than usual, plants bloom earlier and mammals are come out of hibernation sooner. Distribution of animals is also affected; with many species moving closer to the poles as a response to the rise in global temperatures. A sea level rise of only 50cm could cause sea turtles to lose their nesting beaches - over 30% of Caribbean beaches are used by turtles during the nesting season and would be affected
