Scientists have discovered a new species of land snail and named it ‘Craspedotropis gretathunbergae’ after climate activist Greta Thunberg. The snails are known to be sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation. “Naming this snail after Greta is our way of acknowledging that her generation will be responsible for fixing problems they didn’t create,” a researcher said.
