Wildlife populations are continuing to decline because of human activity

According to WWF’s report, wildlife populations have decreased by more than two-thirds in less than 50 years. And, unfortunately, this withdrawal shows no signs of slowing down.

The report warns that nature is being destroyed by people at a high speed because we continue to burn forests, hunt fish, and destroy wild territories. 

The research analyzed various wildlife creatures that were monitored by a group of environmental scientists in their natural habitats.

Since 1970, it has been recorded a 68% decline in more than 20,000 inhabitants, beginning from mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and ending with fish. And the decline is a clear sign of the damage that human activity is causing to nature. And if nothing changes, populations will continue to decline, and this will lead to the destruction of wildlife, risking the ecosystems on which our life depends.

The largest drop is observed in tropical regions. The 94% decline for Latin America and the Caribbean is considered the largest in the world.

This report describes the global picture and the urgency to act as soon as possible. For example, we must change the way of making and eating food. This must include reducing the waste we create.
