Summary:
New research reveals that Norfolk's butterflies, bees, bugs, birds, trees and mammals are at major risk from climate change as temperatures rise. Researchers carried out the first in-depth audit of its kind for a region in the UK to see how biodiversity might be impacted in Norfolk as the world warms. The study finds that the region's Swallowtail Butterfly, which can't be found anywhere else in the UK, is at risk -- along with three quarters of bumblebee, grasshopper and moth species.
