A Cheetah’s Journey Through Climate Change


From household pets to zoo visits, cats are a familiar obsession for most people. The cheetah is a fascinating, speedy animal with five subspecies. Slim and muscular, it has a small and round head crowning a long neck which extends from a deep chest, flexible spine, long tail, and feet padded for speed. Its claws don’t retract, acting similar to soccer player’s cleats by providing extra traction. This lithe, long, and lovely creature inspires children to run around playgrounds, yelling, “I’m a cheetah!”

A Shark's Journey Through Climate Change


Slicing through the oceanic depths, sharks are graceful creatures with a row full of teeth that have haunted nightmares and received a dedicated viewership during Shark Week.

While some similarities are drawn between fish and sharks, sharks also navigate the oceanic environment with the aid of a sophisticated electroreceptive system that allows them to detect slight electrical fields.

A Giraffe's Journey Through Climate Change


Gracefully statuesque with muscular shoulders and a long, arching neck, giraffes roam the African savanna, grazing from the treetops. Their legs are often longer than 6 feet, and they can reach speeds of 35 miles per hour for short distances. These tall creatures with goofy faces, long purple tongues, and an array of individual spotting patterns flaunt two horns alongside their ears that mimics a crown. Needing about 5-30 minutes of sleep per 24-hour period and requiring a sip of water every few days, giraffes are basically superbeings.
