All animals are affected whenever there is climate change, due to loss of habitat and resources.
Certainly, global climate change that occurs at rapid rates can cause ecosystems to be dramatically altered. Species have spent thousands of years adapting to certain climatic ranges and when these conditions are altered quickly the animals may not be able to adapt. Even slight changes in temperature, moisture, and sea level can have drastic effects.
Global warming affects the food chain. Even slight changes in temperature/light affect the growth of microbiotic life, which serves as a food source for larger life species which are, themselves, part of a system that culminates with the largest of mammals. When animals are already in compromised positions (receding habitats, dimininshed numbers, etc.), any change in nutritional availability can pose a serious threat.
