The increase in temperature causing an accelerated effect of global warming and creating a rise in sea level and extreme flash-flooding will have a large impact on the climate and the animals living within it. Although, due to location, some animals could become nearly extinct from the effects of the floods, some creatures, such as midges, will rapidly increase in number. Midges are attracted to damp, flooded areas which is why they are commonly seen in fenland areas. Mass floods will cause a surge in midges and the loss of land will bring the insects further inland. To combat this problem I have built a net which is attached to the base of the headgear. This can be lowered over the face in order to protect it from being bitten.
