The November issue of National Geographic is a special, single-topic issue on the subject of climate change. The one-off edition issue looks at how we know it's happening, how to fix it, and how to live with it.

From a natural history perspective, writer Jennifer Holland takes a look at which animals are adapting to climate change and those who are not.

This stunning feature is accompanied by a set of remarkable pictures by photographer Joel Sartore. Mr Sartore founded the National Geographic Photo Ark, a multi-year project with just one simple goal—to create portraits of the world’s captive species before they disappear, and to inspire people everywhere to care.
