Earth is wildlife at a faster rate than at any time in history. This according to the new "Living Planet Report" from the World Wildlife Fund. The report the global wildlife population by 60 per cent between 1970 and 2014. The WWF that: "Earth is losing biodiversity at a rate only during mass extinctions." Researchers state that most of the decline in our animal population is because of " human consumption". There are more and more humans on this planet. We are more, overfishing, cutting down trees for beef production, more, and using more energy and natural resources. This has in a massive loss of habitat for animals.
The report that only a quarter of the world's land has untouched by humans. This means human activity has greatly animals on three-quarters of Earth's surface. Researchers more than 4,000 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and amphibians. They say the loss of animal life worst in South and Central America. These regions an 89 per cent loss in the population of vertebrates in the past four decades. The WWF : "The astonishing decline in wildlife population...is a depressing reminder, and perhaps the ultimate indicator, of the pressure we on the planet." It warned: "We can be the generation that had its chance and to act; that let Earth away."
