#CLIMATECHANGEIMPACTS ANIMALS AND FOOD RESOURCES
According to a study, climate change now has a great impact and effects on animal’s five welfare domains, including nutrition, environment, behavior, physical and mental health.
Animals at risk from the impacts of climate change highlighted in the review include bats, zebrafish, stony creek frogs, koalas, African elephants, chickens and dairy cows.
For example, the review highlights research that shows how heat stress in dairy cows, for example, has resulted in a 35% reduction in milk production. Climate change also drives more wild populations to ecological limitations and vulnerable species would need to be transferred to new environments (e.g., captive breeding), should food and habitat become limiting resources.
