Climate Change is one of the world’s greatest environmental issues. The world’s reefs are under threat and a huge reason for this is Climate Change. We have all heard about the mass bleaching event that has recently happened on the Great Barrier Reef because of Climate Change. Polar Bears are the first animal to be listed as endangered mainly for this threat. The ice in their home is breaking up making it a lot more difficult for them to hunt their prey. Sea Turtles are dramatically affected by Climate Change because the temperature of their nest determines the gender but with heat increasing more are becoming females with not as many males. Eventually there might not be many males to mate with causing less genetic diversity. Recently the Bramble Cay Melomys, the Great Barrier Reefs only endemic mammal has been declared extinct because of Climate Change.
