The last grizzly bear in captivity, housed at the Cincinnati Zoo, died yesterday. With this death, the species is now extinct in the wild.
This year alone, ten species have gone extinct, including the last three species of rhinoceros. Scientists say that the rate of extinction is now 1,000 times faster than the natural rate and that, at this rate, 30% of all species could be extinct by the end of the century.
The cause of the rapid decline in biodiversity is largely due to human activity, including habitat destruction, pollution, and climate change. Conservation efforts have failed to keep up with the pace of decline, and many species are now lost forever.
This loss of biodiversity has profound consequences for the planet and for humanity. It is essential that we take immediate action to protect the remaining species and to prevent further extinctions.
