“Earth is losing biodiversity at a rate seen only during mass extinctions,” say WWF’s Living Planet Report authors.

The WWF collected data on more than 4,000 species globally between 1970 and 2014. The take-away: Humanity’s insatiable appetite for Earth’s natural resources — energy, land, water — and a growing food-production industry, is leading to “over-exploitation.”
