Humans Killed 68 Percent of Wildlife in 50 Years

Two Major reports recently released show just how much of an impact human activity has had on wildlife. The World Wildlife Fund released a study that suggests in the last 50 years human activity destroyed global wildlife populations by 68 percent.

The United Nations also released a report that said all 196 countries that signed into the Aichi Biodiversity Targets in 2010 failed to meet a single goal put forth at limiting the collapse of biodiversity across the globe.

Both reports used Covid-19 as an example of what can happen when there is a loss of global biodiversity. As humans continue to disrupt ecosystems, we see more disease jump from animals to humans.

The UN report did however have a few positive notes, in Pakistan where a program to save snow leopards has shown great success, as well as a program in Japan to save the crested ibis from extinction.

And yet humanity keeps adding more people to this problematic equation. Insanity!
