The environmental impact of climate change may soon claim more than a dozen animal species, according to a new report from the Wildlife Conservation Society. The study cites many ecosystem disruptions caused by global warming, including changing land and sea temperatures, shifting rain patterns, and exposure to new pathogens and disease. Scientists expect that animal species around the world will be affected, and the report specifically discusses current threats facing flamingos, Irrawaddy dolphins, Hawksbill turtles, and several species of birds. The report was released to coincide with the Copenhagen Climate Conference that began last week and runs until Dec. 18.
