Extinction crisis puts 1 million species on the brink

- Science - December 25, 2022

Nature is in crisis, and it’s only getting worse. According to recent reports, species are vanishing at a rate not seen in 10 million years as more than 1 million species are currently on the brink. Humans are driving this extinction crisis through activities that take over animal habitats, pollute nature, and fuel global warming, scientists say. A new global deal to protect nature agreed on Dec. 19 has the potential to culminate the looming threat.
