First Mammal Extinction from Climate Change
14 June 2016
The Bramble Cay Melomys, a small rodent that lived on a tiny island off the coast of Queensland, Australia, has officially become the first mammal in the world to become extinct as result of human-made climate change. Scientists have concluded that the “root cause” of the extension was sea-level rise resulting in the destruction of their habitat. The Torres Strait sea level has risen at almost twice the global average rate between 1993 and 2014.
Many scientists believe that we have entered the sixth mass extinction as one sixth of the world’s species are currently facing extinction due to climate change. Joya Mia Italiano, Nik Zecevic and Elliot Hill discuss the extinction of the Bramble Cay Melomys and what this means for animals around the world on the Lip News.
