Effects of Global Warming on Wildlife

To some people, wildlife refers to an undomesticated animal species, but it's actually a precious gift to the planet. It plays a significant role in balancing the environment and providing stability to different natural processes. 

Wildlife in this warming world isn't doing well, and we are responsible for it. As humans, we have been so greedy all this time that we forgot every action has an equal reaction. Global warming is just a result of our actions. 

Global warming isn't just melting Glaciers, but also destroying habitats. The rapid change in climate is taking the lives of many species. 

It is estimated that if we didn't take immediate action on climate change, we could lose about 50% of species. 

To survive, plants and animals have to adapt to climate change within their environment or move elsewhere. The change in climate will impact in different ways to the wildlife. For example, African elephants drink about 150-300 litres of water in a single day. 
However, the increase in temperature will result in less rain and more droughts. Thus, it will affect elephant numbers. If the affected wildlife chose to move into new spaces and continue to thrive. The increasing human population will be a great obstacle. 

We have made cities and roads that prevent plants and animals from moving into alternative habitats. Caribou (reindeer), arctic foxes, toads, polar bears, penguins, gray wolves, tree swallows, painted turtles, and salmon are the most affected wildlife species. 

While the world is putting the blame for global warming on large industries, and everyone else but not themselves. We as individuals and smaller groups can help to conserve the planet and reserve the effects of global warming.
