Wildlife affected by Global Warming



Global Warming is the gradual increase in temperature of the atmosphere near the Earth's surface and inthe troposhere, which can contribute to changes in global climate patterns. Global Warming has affected Earth in many ways. Not just us the people, but the habitat of the world.
The reasons habitat is affected by global warming; is because of habitat displacement, shifting life cycles, stress from climate change, and how the animals affect people. Many animals have lived the same habitats forever. And then having to adapt quickly to a new habitat due to ice giving way to water or the possibility that warmer spring temperatures dry up critical breeding habitat for waterflow in the prarie region. In 2003, a study published in the journal Nature said that 80 percent of 1,500 wildlife species tested are already showing signs of stree from climate change.
Global Warming is causing a shift in the timing of events in the lives of animals. Birds for instince, have altrered the timing of migratory and reproductive routines to sync with a warming climate. And animals that hibernate are ending their hibernation earlier each year, due to warmer spring temperatures.
Global Warming is also affecting the sea life, such as turtles, whales, lobsters, fish, and the arctic animals such as polar bears, penguins, and seals. Climate changes directly affects the reproduction of sea turtles in three ways, the sea level rise affects significant nesting beach areas on low-level sand beaches. Second, rising temperatures increase the chance that sand temperatue will exceed the limit for egg incubation.
