On the left, we see a howler monkey in its tropical rainforest habitat. Due to climate change, the glaciers and ice caps have melted so much that the water level has risen significantly. This means that the monkey’s original habitat (the tropical rainforest) is now submerged underwater. Over the years, instead of relocating, the howler monkeys have adapted to their new environment. They have developed gills to breathe underwater and have developed webbed feet and hands to swim efficiently. Their main food source now is small fish and plants like kelp and seaweed.
