One million of the planet’s eight million species are threatened with extinction by humans, scientists warned recently in what is described as the most comprehensive assessment of global nature loss ever.

The global rate of species extinction “is already tens to hundreds of times higher than it has been, on average, over the last 10 million years” Shrinking habitat, exploitation of natural resources, climate change and pollution are the main drivers of species loss and are threatening more than 40% of amphibians, 33% of coral reefs and over a third of all marine mammals with extinction.

Is this mass extension threat a serious concern for the ecosystem?
