Dragonflies
 
and
Climate
Change
 
Screen 1 image
Dragonflies
are
moving
northwards
across
Britain
 
and
Ireland
as
temperatures
rise.
More than
40%
 
of
species
have increased
their distribution
 
since
1970,
while
only
about
10%
 
have
declined.
Experts
from
 
the
British
Dragonfly
Society
say
 
 
it
is
because
 
of
 
the
 
effects
 
of
climate
change.
 
There
is
concern
over
 
the
loss of
insects
 
due to
 
factors
such as
pollution
 
and
habitat
loss.
