Scientists reckon anywhere between 150 and 200 species go extinct each day.
Work on the basis of a mean average of 175 a day this means we lose:-
1225 a week
5,308 a month
63,700 a year
And should I be lucky enough to live to the average age of a western male of 75 years then in my lifetime some 4,777500 species will be lost.
Just how barren will the land be we leave to future generations be?
Is it about time we woke up?
