The Zoological Society of London researchers created habitat suitability maps to identify future habitats that will remain hospitable regardless of the changing climate.

Almost half of all bird and amphibian species are highly vulnerable to extinction due to climate change, and species in rare habitats have already experienced population decline due to changing climates.
