How Animals Will Fare in a Changing Climate

These changes impact animals that are adapted to specific ecological niches, sometimes displacing them or reducing their numbers. From their privileged vantage point, satellites are particularly well-suited to observe habitat transformation and help scientists forecast impacts on the distribution, abundance and migration of animals.

Beaked whales may evade killer whales by silently diving in sync

More formidable whales, of the sperm or pilot variety, have the size and muscle to flee or defend against a killer whale, an ocean superpredator.

Wildlife Sanctuary vs. National Park. — In India, there are 103 National Parks (with a few proposed) and 537 wildlife sanctuaries (source), out of a total of 733 protected areas. While both serve the purpose of protection of wildlife, there are some key differences between the two. The biggest difference between these two Protected Areas is the restriction in entry. Wildlife Sanctuaries allow certain activities to be conducted within its premises, like foraging, collection of firewood from fringe areas, scientific research and if required, hunting.

In National Park, no human activity of any kind can be pursued. Tourism is allowed strictly in the buffer zones and the core zone is completely off-limits except for trained personnel of the National Park.
