The ecosystem in the Himalayas are the source of some of Asia’s major rivers and also help to regulate our planet’s climate. The impact of global climate change is melting the once mighty Himalayas at a rate faster than ever recorded in human history, jeopardizing a vital source of freshwater for billions of people in Asia.
Some threatened spieces in the Eastern Himalayas are the Snow leopard, Red panda, Gangas River Dolphin, Asian Elephant, Rhino, and the Greater One-Horned Rhino. These are the main animals that are being threatened in the wildlife.
Climate change in the Himalayas are impacting people and threatening wildlife in the Eastern Himalayas. Many glaciers are melting, land is drying up and forming lakes prone to bursting and downstream flooding. Warmer temp. and changing humidity have brought insect pests and disease to areas where they were previously absent.
Some ways people can stop the extinction in the Eastern Himalayas are by planting more trees, restoring the terai landscape, safeguarding Bhutan's natural landscape, preseving the sacred Himalayan landscape, conserving the tibetan plateau's vital ecosystem, and finally protecting Northeast India's forests.
