Global alarm sounded over dramatic decline in bird, fish, animal population



The report, compiled by the World Wildlife Fund, the Zoological Society of London and the Global Footprint Network, said the population of animals, birds and fish has dropped by a third in the last 35 years.

You'd have to go back to the extinction of the dinosaurs to see a decline as rapid as this," said Jonathan Loh, editor of the report.

The main reasons for species extinction are pollution, farming and urban expansion, overfishing and hunting, the report said.

Just more reason why we have to start doing something about this. This means that by the time my children are in their mid twenties, there will only be a fraction of the remaining wildlife that there is now. Scary thought if you ask me.

The alarm has been telling us to wake up for some time now maybe its time to stop hitting the snooze button.
