Global warming has sternly affected nature thus making many living species extinct. This is showed way back where dinosaurs became extinct creatures. It is also proven that warm blooded animals can survive during climate change than cold blooded animals i.e. reptiles and amphibians.
According to statistics, Uganda is known for its favorable climate. It can accommodate tourists who always travel for Uganda safaris/Uganda safari/ safaris to Uganda/ safari tours in Uganda and gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda. But animals seen during these tours also have managed to survive with this stable climate. Same applies to DR Congo. Most visitors who go for Congo gorilla trekking safari tours find the climate conducive to do the trekking activity. But animals here try to adapt with the changing climate so that they can survive.
According to research, during the big bang that occurred over 66million years ago, when a space rock hit the earth, most animals didn’t manage to survive for long due to the atmosphere change. This impact also went with the great dinosaurs that are extinct now. E.g. t-Rex and Triceratops
But it is so surprising that warm blooded mammals managed to pull through. For most cold-blooded animals, their life spans were shortened.
Endothermic animals can easily generate and regulate temperature for themselves and their embryo’s or off springs as well. This gives them high survival chances.
According to a researcher at university of British Colombia, he found out that mammals and birds have the capability of changing habitats. They can migrate to favorable climate conducive for their survival.
About mans activities
Did you know that man highly contributes to climate change or global warming! The various activities that take place in our day today lives affect the environment greatly. Activities like factories that output toxic fumes, auto mobiles that might not be in good condition also pollute the environment.
Continuous studies show us that if global warming intensifies, it could cause total extinction of some species. Meaning that some species might never be seen by the future generation.
