BECAUSE ANIMALS MATTER!

Climate change is hurting the animals we love.


Veterinarians for Climate Action - helping the veterinary profession and beyond to advocate for and achieve climate action.

Why we care:

Species extinction

Under business as usual CO2 emissions scenarios, wildlife extinction rates of between 16% to 89% have been predicted

Heat stress

Our members see countless cases of heat stress and dehydration in pets and wildlife

Epidemiology

Climate change will be a factor in the epidemiology of vector-borne diseases, affecting human and animal health

Agricultural productivity and viability

Climate change is changing weather patterns that farmers and their animals rely upon

Our reefs are disappearing

Climate change presents the single biggest threat to the continued existence of the Great Barrier Reef

Water scarcity

As well as rising temperatures, the southern half of Australia is experiencing long-term reductions in the rainfall

Natural disasters

Increased natural disasters such as cyclones, bushfires, floods and droughts cause untold distress to the livestock, wildlife and pets and animals we love.

One Health

Climate change threatens our One Health relationship with Australia's animals.
