According to a new report from the World Wildlife Fund 40 percent of the world's wildlife species, and 70 percent of river species, have disappeared from the face of the earth since 1970.
Human beings have truly have become the planet's most dangerous specious--a threat to virtually ever other species on the planet. The problem is that, even if you don't care about wildlife diversity, the disappearance of such large numbers of the planet's animal populations should be wakeup call. Our planet is on life-support and getting sicker by the year. Will the end result be a mass extinction the likes of which the human race has never before experienced? One seeks to be hopeful, but our lack of collection action in protecting endangered wildlife doesn't bode very well for the future...of animal or ourselves.
