India floods take devastating toll on wild animals

Devastating floods in northeast India have killed dozens of wild animals, including rare one-horned rhinos. About 60 percent of the Kaziranga National Park in the state of Assam is underwater. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinos, 16 of which have died in floods. Park authorities say climate change and the building of dams have worsened their effects.

Climate Change is the name commonly given to the notion that the Earth is undergoing a changing climate as a result of human activity, including notable leaders, scientists and naturalists including Sir David Attenborough.

Climate change includes both the global warming driven by human emissions of greenhouse gases, and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns.
