      I think new species will evolve from the species that are alive on Earth now.

      As the climate changes and other changes happen animals will start to adapt to these changes. The animals that have adapted will be more successful in breeding and so these traits will pass on to the next generation. Over many generations the animals might change so that they are now very different from their ancestors which basically is when they are a new species.
