Hundreds of monkeys die as heatwave hits Mexico



A severe heatwave in Mexico, especially in Tabasco, is causing significant harm to wildlife, with temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius leading to many casualties, including nearly 250 dead howler monkeys. The Environment Department has confirmed a high number of fatalities, with conservationists warning of a dire situation. Emergency efforts are underway to save the remaining animals, including installing air conditioning in shelters and providing water stations and shaded areas. Experts are linking these extreme events to climate change, emphasizing the need for enhanced policies and conservation efforts to protect biodiversity. Urgent action is essential to help Mexico’s wildlife survive this heatwave and combat future challenges.
