Wildlife is disappearing faster than before. The world's wildlife population fell by 60 per cent between 1970 and 2014. The WWF said the loss of wildlife is like a "mass extinction". This is because of "exploding human consumption". There are more people on Earth. They are eating more and using more resources and energy.

Humans have changed three-quarters of the Earth. In South and Central America, there has been an 89 per cent loss of wildlife since 1970. The WWF said this was shocking. It said the loss was "a [depressing] reminder...of the pressure we [put] on the planet." It warned we must act now and not "let Earth slip away".
