An intense Heatwave is ravaging Mexico’s wildlife, kills many howler monkeys

An intense heatwave is ravaging Mexico’s wildlife, particularly in Tabasco, where temperatures exceeding 40°C (104°F) have caused widespread fatalities, including nearly 250 howler monkeys.

As of May 31, the Environment Department confirmed 204 howler monkey deaths, with 157 occurring in Tabasco alone. The count in Tabasco has since risen to 198, bringing the national toll close to 250.

Conservationists warn of a worsening crisis, with the heatwave showing no signs of abating, according to the Voice of America.

In response, unprecedented measures are being implemented, such as installing air conditioning in shelters, to save the remaining animals.

Authorities and environmental groups are collaborating on emergency efforts, including providing water stations and shaded areas.

As experts link such extreme events to climate change, there are increasing calls for enhanced policies and conservation efforts.

With Mexico’s wildlife under severe threat, urgent action is crucial to surviving this heatwave and protecting biodiversity against future challenges.
