The video gives an outlook on the impact of climate change on bird species loss. Global warming also induces mosquito infestations and this causes loss of biodiversity and threatens other bird species and wildlife to migrate to new regions. The drawings on the video connects students to reflect on new ways to take urgent climate actions to conserve the natural ecosystem. This resource is recommended for teaching.
