What You Should Know
At the present rates of extinction, as many as 20% of the world's 7-15 million species could be gone in the next 30 years. This rate of extinction has been unprecedented since the disappearance of dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Habitas are being cleared for human consumption inorder to make way for agriculture, housing, roads, pipelines and the other hallmarks of industrial development.
It's not too late! Help save these habitats and animals. Visit the World Wildlife Fund to see how you can make a difference.
