Although climate change poses a real threat for all the flora and fauna of the planet, there are species that are affected much more than others. One of the species that will suffer the most devastating effects of global warming will be all amphibians on the planet.

The greatest loss will occur throughout Spain, where many species will end up becoming extinct due to the high temperatures and the aridification process that various areas of the peninsula will suffer. Specific, the part of Eastern Andalusia It will be the great victim since it is an area especially sensitive to changes in temperature.

The amphibians that currently populate the Earth are species that have been able to survive climate change that has occurred for hundreds of years. Nevertheless, the severity and acceleration of current climate change it is causing many species of amphibians to be rapidly disappearing. Amphibians are one of the species most affected by sudden changes in the climate, so they are much more vulnerable thanue other animal species.

Unfortunately, some of the effects of climate change the amphibian population is beginning to suffer from them. In this way, the high temperatures that have occurred in recent years have caused the larvae to cannot complete their metamorphosis causing a considerable decrease in the amphibian population. In addition to these obvious and real problems that endanger this species, the global warming that the planet suffers causes that the habitat in which amphibians develop is highly altered and contaminated which has a negative impact on the life of the amphibians themselves.

As you can see, climate change It is a real problem that the whole Earth suffers and that is why solutions to this problem must be quickly implemented.
