Climate in Crisis: Wildlife Faces Extinction from Climate Change

Climate in Crisis: Wildlife Faces Extinction from Climate Change

Animals are being threatened by hotter temperatures, sea level rise and wildfires. Biologists estimate that 35% of plants and animals may become extinct by 2050.

Here are a few of the most endangered animals in the Bay Area:

- The Blue Copper Butterfly calls the Sonoma coast and Sierra home and relies on the cool weather. They are one of 20 other endangered butterfly species.

- The Wilson’s Warbler is among 72 highly threatened birds due to warming temperatures and destroyed habitats.

- The "Pacific Blob" and warmer temperatures have endangered 50% of sea and freshwater fish.

- Dungeness crab is highly endangered due to ocean acidification.
