Save Earth | HUMAN IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

We are, by all credible accounts, currently in the sixth great extinction in Earth’s history. Humans are undoubtably driving this loss of biodiversity.

 

The current rate of species extinction is between 1,000 – 10,000 times higher than the background rate of extinction.

 

Since 1970, populations of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish have plummetd by just under 60%.
