Thanks to Human Activities, World Faces Sixth Mass Extinction

It is unfortunate to know the bitter truth that humans have been exploiting the environment to a great extent since the last many years. Its about time that mother nature backfired as the world’s sixth mass extinction of species took place, which will affect all of us in the long run.

Human impact has accelerated extinction rates by up to 100 times their “natural rate,” according to a recent report by scientists at the National Autonomous University in Mexico.
This isn’t new, as conservationists have been warning since many years about the destruction of habitats and human degradation will cause a mass extinction event. But it is the crucial nature of the situation which left the report’s authors shocked.

Using fossil records, scientists calculated a “natural” rate of extinction. For every 10,000 species, two go extinct every 100 years.

In the past 100 years, almost 500 species have died off since 1900 instead of the nine which would be a natural rate.
Those include 69 mammals, 80 birds, 24 reptiles, 146 amphibians and 158 fish, and those figures are “highly conservative,” the report states.

Researchers are calling it a global “biomass crisis.”

British Columbia has already witnessed to see the effects of the mass die off. The province has listed more than 750 species belonging to the category of endangered, extinct, or threatened.  Another 750 are listed as being of special concern.

For instance, the Oregon Spotted Frog, which could once be seen frequently in the Fraser Valley, is not one of the most endangered species in Canada thanks to the urban development of its wetlands.
