Wow, I guess I pulled the doom and gloom card this morning!
With so few gorrillas and tigers left, poachers will get them all before climate change does, unless governments are willing to put their money where their mouths are and pay for unparraleled protection for these animal NOW.

Base from the article"The most affected areas include mountains, isolated islands and coastal areas, which limit the possibilities for animals to migrate elsewhere and create new habitats."The remaining populations become enclosed in very small ecosystems, they have inbreeding problems ... and at the end these species may disappear," Thank you Cal.

Trouble is that there are so many selfish, self-centred, utter and complete idiots in the world that they won't notice climate change until it is way past too late to help anything and anyone... Nil desperandum - must strive onwards!

What many don't seem to understand is that this world is one, not separate individual worlds. What happens in one place will affect another. For all our sake I hope for all our sakes, that some solution will be put into action.
