Depressing Report: Earth Has Lost Half its Animals

Depressing Report: Earth Has Lost Half its Animals
BY MICHELE S. BYERS
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NEW JERSEY CONSRVATION FOUNDATION

A new report on the state of the Earth’s animals is “not for the faint-hearted,” according to the World Wildlife Fund.

The “2014 Living Planet Report” tracks more than 10,000 populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish from all over the world. The sobering news is that overall numbers have declined by 52 percent since 1970.
