Animals and Climate Change

We are aware that warming temperatures are affecting us. How they affect animals is unimaginable. I decided to look into that and learn more.

If you haven't noticed the warming temperatures, the fluctuating climate from what we are used to from season to season, the difference in the number of species in your area as time goes by, the lack of song birds and fewer bees and much more around you, then it is time to start paying attention.

We are all so obsessed with our phones and the internet, that we have failed to stand still and look around in the real world. All kinds of changes are happening and you will want to notice since your very life might depend upon it.

Aside from that, we owe it to our fellow animals to help them because they are definitely struggling. What do you think happens when massive fires take over? It must be terrifying for all creatures, especially those living in the ground or hollow trees.

I for one have noticed we are getting more large animals coming closer and wandering around cities. The habits of creatures change when the habitat is no longer supportive. But most of us just see them as a nuisance rather than feeling their pain. We should be more aware they might be in our midst.

It is not just fires either. Trees die when there is not enough water. Ground water is drying up. Another thing is when nature no longer sends out familiar signals, animals do not know when to have their young because food to feed them has to be present.

We already have invaded their spaces with out activities like cities that continue to sprawl deeper into the forest. Farming and removing the trees from the forest does not help either. And more and more are on the brink of extinction because they cannot find each other or die trying.

The species who live in polar regions will feel the effects first since ice is melting as are glaciers. Those on islands , mountains and by the sea including species in the sea will be next. And birds, well they were migrating but less of them do now.

What can we do? Keep aware of what is happening around you. Carry a bottle of water, you never know what else might need a drink. Create a natural habitat in your own back yard. Start growing your own food and plant trees with groups trying to help the forest. Plant wild flowers and support organizations who care about nature.
