Elephants and Climate change

Elephants have definitely been affected by global warming in a variety of ways. These animals rely upon plenty of plants and fruits in their natural habitat to be able to survive on. When the temperatures soar it can be very difficult for these plants and trees to grow like they should. As a result there can end up being a shortage of food in the area for the elephants to consume. Since they need from 300 to 600 pounds of food every day there has to be plenty of great vegetation out there if they are going to be able to survive.
