From the New York Times, 7/11/17, by Tatiana Sclossberg (read the entire article at: https://nyti.ms/2va4GaE)

From the common barn swallow to the exotic giraffe, thousands of animal species are in precipitous decline, a sign that an irreversible era of mass extinction is underway, new research finds.
The study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, calls the current decline in animal populations a “global epidemic” and part of the “ongoing sixth mass extinction” caused in large measure by human destruction of animal habitats. The previous five extinctions were caused by natural phenomena.
Gerardo Ceballos, a researcher at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in Mexico City, acknowledged that the study is written in unusually alarming tones for an academic research paper. “It wouldn’t be ethical right now not to speak in this strong language to call attention to the severity of the problem,” he said.
Dr. Ceballos emphasized that he and his co-authors, Paul R. Ehrlich and Rodolfo Dirzo, both professors at Stanford University, are not alarmists, but are using scientific data to back up their assertions that significant population decline and possible mass extinction of species all over the world may be imminent, and that both have been underestimated by many other scientists.
They found that about 30 percent of all land vertebrates — mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians — are experiencing declines and local population losses. In most parts of the world, mammal populations are losing 70 percent of their members because of habitat loss.
In particular, they cite cheetahs, which have declined to around 7,000 members; Borneo and Sumatran orangutans, of which fewer than 5,000 remain; populations of African lions, which have declined by 43 percent since 1993; pangolins, which have been “decimated”; and giraffes, whose four species now number under 100,000 members.

This book is chilling. Just finished chapter one. If not stopped, when we are all gone, all the future may see of us are our pennies and the pebbles among which the coins hide.

So excited to dive into this months top pick for book club. 🤓📖🐛 #keylargobookclub #bookwormsunite #thesixthextinction

"If you want to think about why humans are so dangerous to other species, you can picture a poacher in Africa carrying an AK-47 or a logger in the Amazon gripping an ax, or, better still, you can picture yourself, holding a book on your lap." -#elizabethkolbert #thesixthextinction
Finished this book several months ago, but after watching Tarzan (the Disney animated version) with the fam last night, it felt like a good time to post about it. Y'all, humans are close to killing off TWO-THIRDS of all wildlife in just 50 YEARS. Google it! We need to debunk this mythical notion that climate change is a hoax. And while we like to coin phrases like "Save the Earth!" it's not the earth we should be worried about. The earth has undergone five major extinctions, and humans could be responsible for the sixth. I'm sure Earth could survive a sixth extinction. Humans—on the other hand—can't. So to keep a long rant from becoming any longer, I highly recommend this book! It was a fascinating read and not only serves as a cautionary tale, but also gave me great appreciation for the complexity of this planet and the creatures that inhabit it (humans included). We are an exceptional species whose talents shine brightest when channeled into a greater good. 🙌🏼

Just finished. Guys, humans are horrible

"We in the U.S. have such a huge responsibility. We have a role to play in the world. One of the many unfair things is that the people who are feeling the first effects of climate change are the ones who have contributed least to it." Elizabeth Kolbert, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Sixth Extinction. Read the full interview in our latest issue, townvibe.com/Berkshire.

This was once a forest. Thick with giant trees, orangutans, and thousands of other species. Now it is nothing. …
Indonesia is home to tigers, elephants, rhinos, and one of the most rainforest rich countries on earth. And it is being torn apart. This is some exciting work by my friends at @thegeckoproject and @mongabay_wildtech . It explores the forces behind this kind of atrocity and answers the question of WHY we are losing so much habitat. And when we know why - we can start on the HOW of stopping this from continuing. …………Check out the trailer and the incredible work these guys are doing at https://thegeckoproject.org/indonesiaforsale/home

Just a random post with all the event posters before the event day to better express my feelings. We planned a lot, meanwhile we overlooked a lot too. I'm not so sure how is it going to be, but I'm actually trying my best.
Special thanks for those who really put in their efforts to make the event better (you know who you are 💕). I know I'm not an ideal leader, but I'm learning and I sincerely hope that we all learn something together throughout the event.
Few more days to go and let's do this together and end our semester with something great 🎈

Author Elizabeth Kolbert is speaking at @rowanuniversity today at 11am in Pfleeger Hall--excited to hear her speak, but also horrified this is our current human-caused reality. #PROFspective #thesixthextinction #kolbert #elizabethkolbert

Bumblebees and other wild bees are in decline. But despite a general EU ban, Danish farmers are allowed to use the bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides. Help the good people @danmarksnatur to make a difference for the bees by signing here: www.bidraeber.dk

Dear Earthlings, we have now opened for Foundation students to be part of our exciting adventure. This is to give the foundation students an amazing opportunity to further know about Applied Geology in Curtin University before stepping into next level. The event will be happening on 16th October with the bunch of activities such as station games and talk on Mass extinction by our enthusiast lecturer, Dr Dominique. Not forget to mention, the entry is free of charge with chances to win prizes and certificates will be provided too! Still considering which path to take for your degree? Do sign up through the link provided below and join us on our GeoDay! ⚒🌎🤘🏼
