Forest wildlife worldwide has halved since 1970

In a report released Tuesday, the WWF has claimed that worldwide forest-dwelling wildlife population has decreased by close to 53 per cent since 1970. The decline is largely due to the destruction of the forests. WWF studied 268 species of vertebrates and 455 forest-dwelling wildlife populations for the report. Other threats include hunting, climate change, invasive species and disease.

Most animals on earth contribute to the ecosystem in vital ways. Also, once they're gone, they're gone for good. There's no reason for making them extinct except human selfishness. We're living way beyond our needs and straight up murder the planet for materialistic shit. Biodiversity on earth have been thriving for over 3 billion years, with some extinctions here and there. Do we really want to be the species that made Earth go from having 100 000s of species to 10 in the span of a couple hundred years? Just us, our dogs & cats and the animals we raise to eat. All for some bigger cities and shiny stuff.
