Changing Habitats

A habitat includes several factors that make it suitable for a species to live, such as a particular temperature range and the availability of food.

Warming oceans are threatening marine habitats around the world. Some species are being forced to migrate to an area with a more suitable temperature. Others may follow a species if it's a source of food.
