The last year has been a rough one, with a high number of wildlife habitat destruction in the name of progress and the death of the last male white rhinoceros. Those who love animals and want to see diversity of species continue to worry about this issue and how human expansion impacts the world’s ecosystems.
A recent United Nations report showed as many as 1 million species on the brink of extinction. The study points to human activities placing 25% of species at risk of extinction in the next few decades.
Even though the UN warns of pending doom to many creatures and we all understand the impact the loss of one species has on local habitat, humans seem incapable of curbing development.
