Climate change, deforestation, and other threats put a huge portion of wildlife at risk. An international team of scientists have finished a new atlas map that highlights the location of 10,000 reptile species, and shows areas in need of better protection.
About 45 percent of the U.S. is relatively undisturbed by human beings. These natural areas, such as the forest patches of the Southeast, provide homes for many species today. But those species will undoubtedly need to move in the near future as temperatures continue warming and precipitation shifts. Is there some way we can plan for and aid species to adapt as the climate changes?
