Global warming means the heating up of the earth, which is the ultimate result of our wrong deeds. It increases the temperature of the atmosphere, which is very dangerous for wildlife. There are many causes for global warming. Very first cause of global warming is deforestation that is caused by cutting and burning of forests for the purpose of residence and industrialization. Due to this, wildlife conservation has become the most typical thing to go on. The climate will not be suitable for the wildlife, which will make the survival difficult for wildlife species. Such type of climate will push those species to extinction, which is not able to adapt. Due to this, wildlife will have to face many adverse effects, which are mentioned below:
Displacement of habitat: Very first impact of global warming on wildlife is habitat displacement, whereby ecosystems shift quickly. The animals spent millions of years adapting to an ecosystem. Water founding a way through the ice in polar bear habitat is just one example of this. Affected wildlife populations can sometimes move into new spaces and continue to thrive, but it can be dangerous for them. They may not find the suitable space for them in the next place.
Change in the natural life cycle: Beyond the trouble of habitat displacement, many experts agree that global warming is causing a shift in the timing of various natural cyclical events in the lives of animals. Many birds have altered the timing of long-held migratory and reproductive routines to better sync up with a warming climate. In short, they are trying to adapt with the changing climate. Apart from this, as wildlife species are going for their separate ways, humans can also feel the impact of it. As humans and wildlife are interrelated to each other, happening something to one will automatically affect the other.
Species in danger: Some of the wildlife species hardest hit so far by global warming include caribou (reindeer), arctic foxes, toads, polar bears, penguins, gray wolves, tree swallows, painted turtles and salmon. As temperatures continue to rise, animals will react by changing how they live, moving to new areas, or disappearing because they can’t find the type of home or food they need.
This would make earth a hotter planet, which can lead to the extinction of life as the heat would be too much to bear. According to scientific calculations, global warming may be the only danger to our planet. Wildlife tourism can have a role to play in stopping detrimental activities by increasing awareness and encouraging people to relish rather than ravish the natural environment. This can be instrumental in raising awareness and changing attitudes towards animals. Despite enforcing conservation efforts at an international level, the use of tourism to change views at a local level is far more powerful.
