Tens of thousands of fish washed up dead in Texas

Climate Change Just Killed Tens of Thousands of Fish in Texas

Tens of thousands of dead fish have been washed ashore on the Gulf Coast in Texas. Experts worry that the perfect storm of factors — including, and perhaps most importantly, global climate change — contributed to a tragic mass die-off in the region.

When temperatures rise abnormally, fish are more prone to hypoxia, or low oxygen levels. These mass die-offs occur when fish are literally starved for oxygen, a process that causes as much suffering as it sounds.

The climate crisis isn’t coming: it’s already here, and living things around the world are already dying needlessly. When will global institutions like the World Bank act?

Tens of thousands of fish dying from a warming ocean cannot become normal. We must encourage the World Bank to act to fund climate solutions! Sign the petition now if you agree!
