Description:
The unique way of life of migratory animals, be it birds, marine or terrestrial mammals, fish, marine turtles, or insects, illustrates like no other phenomenon the connectivity of ecosystems across the globe. While Climate Change has very different faces in different regions, these animals need to adjust their migration patterns accordingly if they are to survive. Migratory species are especially at risk due to Climate Change because they require separate breeding, wintering, and migration habitats of high quality and in suitable locations. Often, one or more of these habitats could be at risk
