60% of world animal population lost since 1970, report says

Global wildlife population shrank 60 percent between 1970 and 2014, according to the World Wildlife Fund’s 2018 Living Planer report.

“Earth is losing biodiversity at a rate seen only during mass extinctions,” the report warns. The Living Planet Report, which publishes every two years, tracked more than 4,000 species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians.
