This is the list of animals most at risk to disappear because of climate change
The World Wide Fund for Nature Protection WWF published a list of the 10 animals most at risk of extinction as a result of climate change.
Every year is the largest percentage reduction in the Arctic ice, polar bear habitat. If you continue to melt the ice caps polar bears will disappear within 75 years. Some scientists predict that by the summer of 2013 in the Arctic will have melted and most of the ice sheets.

The kangaroos and other species of the family are at great risk of extinction, high temperatures create fires that kill most of the wild species.
Whales are continuing threat either by blows that ship or receive traffic and marketing. In addition, as a result of climate change migration routes of whales are affected by changes in ocean temperature. This makes some lost at sea or traveling through unfamiliar areas.
The melting in Antarctica also be the cause of extinction of penguins, some scientists in 2100. Sea ice is essential to the life of the emperor penguin, in protecting their young, is the source of their food and the place where feather molt.
