With rising temperatures and seas, massive droughts, and changing landscapes, successfully adapting to climate change is increasingly important. For humans, this can mean using technology to find solutions. But for some plants and animals, adapting to these changes involves the most ancient solution of all: evolution. In this video Erin Eastwood explains how animals are adapting to climate change.
Can Wildlife Adapt to Climate Change? is a unique addition to those resources that may be used in the classroom to support units of study that investigate the consequences of climate change. Given the introductory nature of the video, it might be used as part of a larger student study of biological or genetic diversity and evolution. It would also support other units in Science and Environmental Science that relate to loss of habitat, threatened species and the sustainability of ecosystems.
