Evidence: Horseshoe Crab

Each year, half a million Horseshoe Crabs are captured and bled alive to create biomedical technology. According to reports, 10-30% of them die, which is considered better than their statistical fate as fertilizer and bait. (“The Blood Harvest,” Alexis C. Madrigal, The Atlantic.)

Evidence: Glacier

Glaciers across much of the world are retreating in response to changing climate. Since 1967, the Teton Glacier, seen here in 2016, has lost 15 percent of its surface area. If current trends continue, the glaciers of the Teton Range will disappear. Their passing will be one of the many transformations this landscape will experience in the face of climate change.

Evidence: Monarch Butterfly

According to scientists, the North American continent’s Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus) population has declined by more than 80 percent from its average during the past two decades — and by more than 90 percent from its peak of nearly one billion butterflies in the mid-1990s. (National Wildlife Federation, “Battle for Butterflies, The fight to bring back North America’s dwindling migratory monarchs,” by Laura Tangley.)

Evidence: Great Spangled Fritillary

The Great Spangled Fritillary (Speyeria cybele) prefers violets, near which they lay their eggs each spring. They sleep through the winter and will only awaken in the spring at the same time as violet plants begin to grow. It is feared that global warming may disrupt this synchronization; this would prove catastrophic to fritillary caterpillars. (“Fritillary: A Pretty Butterfly and a Good Pollinator,” By Beatriz Moisset, U.S. Department of Agriculture)
