“WWF: Climate change poses a fundamental threat to the places, species and people´s livelihoods WWF works to protect. To adequately address this crisis we must urgently reduce carbon pollution and prepare for the consequences of global warming, which we are already experiencing.”
Note from author: As reported by environment correspondent Ian Johnston in Independent on February 14th 2017, at least 700 species that are facing extinction are hit by climate change. A study by Frontiers in Marine Science reveals that many fish species have altered their areas or increased their depth ranges along with environmental changes, i.e. rising sea temperatures. In Finland, the endangered Saimaa ringed seal (there are only 360 left), suffers not only from fishing nets, but also from vanishing icecaps. (Suomen Luonnonsuojeluliitto 2017).
