EL NIÑO AND WILDLIFE MIGRATION
El Niño is a climate phenomenon that occurs when ocean currents in the Pacific Ocean warm up, causing changes in weather patterns around the world.
These changes in weather patterns can have a significant impact on ecosystems, including wildlife migration patterns.
During El Niño years, some areas experience droughts, while others experience heavy rainfall and flooding.
This can disrupt the food chain and cause some species to migrate to new areas in search of food and water.
For example, El Niño has been linked to changes in the migration patterns of birds, fish, and marine mammals.
Understanding the impact of El Niño on wildlife migration is important for conservation efforts and managing ecosystems in a changing climate.
