California: Experts have said in a new study that if global warming continues at its current rate, more than half of Antarctica’s native species will disappear by the end of this century.
According to research published in the journal PLoS Biology, if the world does not curb pollution from fossil fuels, Antarctica’s native plant and animal species (including penguins) will likely disappear by the end of this century. .
The study found that ongoing efforts to protect the environment in Antarctica are not working in the face of rapidly changing climates. Can save up to 84 percent.
According to Jasmine Lee, lead author of the study, because Antarctica is not heavily populated, the region does not have a significant contribution to climate change, so the greatest threat to this extreme is from outside the region. We need a global effort on climate change combined with regional environmental protection efforts to give life in Antarctica the best possible chance of survival.
The study found that the melting ice in Antarctica would endanger emperor and adele penguins, which depend on the ice from April to December.
