Human activity on Earth has seriously affected the environment in which animals live, putting hundreds of wild animals on the brink of extinction, according to new research. Scientists believe these are undeniable evidence that the Earth is facing a sixth mass extinction. Species disappear 100 times faster than in natural conditions.
If the cause of the previous mass extinction was volcanic eruptions, asteroids hitting the Earth and other natural disasters, then the current species extinction is a man-made disaster: human son is responsible for the extinction of these animals. They studied data on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species and Birds and confirmed that at least 515 species were endangered, with a total of less than 1,000 each species. These animals live on six continents outside Antarctica and their habitats are highly affected by human activities and are concentrated in tropical and subtropical regions. They include golden-faced dragonflies, Ethiopian wolves, Javan rhinoceros, Spanish emperors, yellow-eared long-tailed parrots, Ganges crocodiles, central American green black-spotted poison frogs, and so on.
