A big world on a small planet. We are on track to lose two-thirds of wild animals by 2020.

More than 300 animal species are being eaten into extinction. 

The biggest cause of tumbling animal numbers is the destruction of wild areas for farming and logging: the majority of the Earth’s land area has now been impacted by humans, with just 15% protected for nature. Poaching and exploitation for food is another major factor, due to unsustainable fishing and hunting. The Guardian
