Bleacher reports: The top ten threats to California’s wildlife, with photos and video
By Mike GrollPublished May 14, 2018 06:27:27The world has changed drastically since the days of our ancestors.
Our species, and in particular our wild relatives the grizzly bear, have been the most successful in maintaining a stable ecosystem for tens of thousands of years.
The bears’ ability to keep up with our changing habits and demands has allowed them to thrive in a climate where humans are destroying our planet’s natural resources.
The effects of climate change are already being felt in California, and these changes have had profound impacts on the state’s iconic landscape.
In particular, the loss of snow and ice has caused habitat loss and disrupted the seasonal cycle of wildlife.
The loss of the snowpack is one of the most profound impacts of climate disruption.
Snowpacks in the Northern Rockies, which are considered to be among the most productive in the world, are already in jeopardy of disappearing in the coming decades.
It has been estimated that the state could lose about 30 percent of its snowpack by the end of the century.
In the California Mountains, the area with the highest concentrations of ice cover, there is also a clear trend of decreasing snowpack.
The California snowpack, which is estimated to hold the world’s largest water storage reserve, is expected to disappear within the next 40 years.
Other changes are already taking place in the state, with the number of wildfires rising by an estimated 80 percent since 1970, according to the National Park Service.
In the meantime, the California drought has already caused significant damage to our state’s natural resource management system.
The state is on track to lose nearly half of its water reserves by 2045.
In addition, the state has already lost some of its most valuable freshwater resources.
