Is this the end for kangaroos?
Climate change resulting in extinction of kangaroos.
âGlobal warmingâ and âclimate changeâ are the most familiar issues, with which every country is battling hard today. The ever-increasing climate change has turned out to be a big threat to some of the species on planet earth. Both the living and non-living aspects of nature are being targeted by the climate change, but the kangaroos of Australia are the most affected. Reports say that a mere 2-degrees Celsius rise in temperature may develop a high risk of extinction of Kangaroos in Australia.
Researchers at James Cook University in Australia believe:
Even a 0.5Â°C increase in temperature could reduce kangaroos’ geographic ranges, while an increase of two degrees may shrink kangaroos’ ranges by 48 percent, and a six-degree increase might diminish ranges by 96 percent
Global warming and climate change is a reality and of course, very likely human induced. Combating with these two is of course the need of the hour, but these issues need to be looked after properly to help the endangered species from extinction.
