Climate change science resource

animals at risk

The complex interaction of biological traits and environmental conditions that cause a species to be susceptible to climate change and the basics of the carbon cycle are made simple and understandable through illustrations, symbols and brief explanatory text–thoroughly documented to reliable sources. Based on studies from the IUCN Climate Change Specialist Group, the US EPA, NASA, NOAA and the IPCC, the poster features 25 animals that highlight the fundamental impacts of greenhouse gases—causes, effects and risk of extinction—on all forms of life on the planet.

Feedback we are receiving from teachers make it clear that irrefutable facts presented in an accessible way are urgently needed:

“Brilliant! As a start, every high school science classroom should have a copy of this poster.”
~Dr Tara Martin, IUCN Species Survival Commission’s Climate Change Specialist Group

I have attached a PDF which includes a small image of the entire poster and some of the components in detail.
