The world's wildlife has declined by nearly a third over the past 40 years, a new estimate of the health of the planet suggests. In some parts the figure is much higher – in the tropics, losses are estimated at more than 50 per cent, while in tropical freshwater ecosystems specifically, average losses may be as high as 70 per cent, according to the 2012 edition of the Living Planet Report, produced by the WWF.

not surprising with all the deforestation and urbanization
 
I'm surprised it is not higher than a third considering the changes that have happened to this planet has significantly increased in the last 40 years.
 
In the future - the highly evolved cockroaches will look back at the period when all higher life died out and allowed them to evolve. They will speculate over the extinction mechanism - volcano, meteor impact or solar flares. Some may speculate that unintelligent ant like mammal swarms living in vast hives swarmed over the planet before becoming extinct due to their inability to adapt.
 
its a shame wild life is dying due to humans hunting them and destorying ther habitats!!!!
 
i agree with mr mcauliffe
 
Today we killed animals, land, forest, etc. because we believe we are making profits with it....Until we finally understand all living things are connected and necessary to our very existence we will not get the real gain...
 
NO WONDER ALIENS ARE PLANNING TO EXTERMINATE US WHEN THEY GET HERE LATER IN THE YEAR.
