美國猶他州的天氣暖化,使當地冬眠的灰熊比往年早一個月醒來。可是林裡的植物還未開始長盛,昆蟲的數量亦很少,令灰熊們很難覓食。專家擔心這會影響牠們的健康,長遠數量會減少。
In Utah, the warm weather draw hibernating bears out of their dens a month earlier than usual. however, the plants hasn’t started growing and there are not many insects yet. bears could hardly find any food in the forest, and that makes them weaker and easier to get sick. researchers are worry that the warming climate would bring down the number of bears in a long run.
