“Some say we’re on the verge of the sixth mass extinction- wrong! we are in the middle of it- entirely human-made.”

“Humans are relatively large animals. When we look at a landscape we are aware of the mammals, birds and reptiles- relatively large, back-boned species like ourselves. We give little thought to the countless billions of smaller creatures such as insects, worms and microorganisms that actually contribute far more to the survival and health of global ecosystems”

The diversity of the animals on this planet is diminishing at an alarming rate. We need to change our ways, and we need to change them fast. Many species have become extinct, are endangered and will become extinct, and what is it all because of? One species – humans.
