Climate change and animals

Image 5 of 8


A green sea turtle is rescued on the beach at Brewster, Mass., on Nov. 25 and is being cared for at the New England Aquarium's animal care center in Quincy, Mass. Climate change affects sea turtles' reproduction with rising sea levels that affect nesting beaches, and rising temperatures that affect incubation and the sex of the eggs. Higher temperatures during incubation cause more female turtles to be born.
