A Mammal Species Is Extinct Due To Human-induced Climate Change

According to Mother Nature Network, the Bramble Cay melomys, was declared extinct this week by researchers in Australia.

This rodent is reportedly the first mammal species wiped out by human-induced climate change, having lost most of its habitat to rising seas.

The Bramble Cay melomys was a distinct species of rodents from Oceania with an island of its own, and the only mammal native to the Great Barrier Reef.
