Wildlife is disappearing faster than ever before. The WWF says the world’s wildlife population dropped by 60 percent between 1970 and 2014. It said, “Earth is losing biodiversity at a rate seen only during mass extinctions.” Most of this is because of “exploding human consumption”. There are more people and they are eating more, buying more, cutting down more trees, and using more energy. This has led to a big loss of habitat for animals.
The report says that only a quarter of the world is untouched by humans. Researchers tracked 4,000 species of animals. In South and Central America, there has been an 89 percent loss of wildlife in four decades. The WWF wrote that the shocking loss of wildlife was a depressing reminder of the pressure we put on the planet. It warned we must act now and not “let Earth slip away”.
