Holy crap. I stumbled on this article this morning. Sad, scary stuff.
Two standout quotes for me:
“Nearly half of the 177 mammal species surveyed lost more than 80% of their distribution between 1900 and 2015…”
“Humanity will eventually pay a very high price for the decimation of the only assemblage of life that we know of in the universe.”
Give it a read. Terrible to think that the next great extinction (#6) could well be human-caused.
