Humans alone are not responsible for the extinction of megafauna. A study of ancient DNA being led by the University of Adelaide has found that rapid warming has also played a role, in fact a major role.

It was only when the climate warmed long after the humans had already arrived in Patagonia that the megafauna started to die off around 12,300 years back. Once, giant Ice Age species, including elephant-sized sloths and powerful sabre-toothed cats used to roam Patagonia, southern South America, but they became victim to rapid warming and humans.

Australia’s most isolated mammal in Bramble Cay is first to get extinct due to climate change

For the first time ever, extinction of a mammal owing to climate change has been documented. A team of Australian biologists was one to document the mammal Bramble Cay melomys as extinct due to destruction in its habitat brought by climate change. The animal, last seen on a small island off the coast of Papua New Guinea, is now nowhere to be seen. The size and shape of the island have changed drastically, leaving almost no habitat for the mammal to thrive.
