The wildnature of the planet is at its most fragile right now. While the vast majority of the Earth’s land is still used for agriculture, more than 85% of the land is now occupied by humans. Of that land, 77% is now dominated by agriculture and a third is oceanic. Recent research has revealed that more than half of the world’s ecosystems are now destroyed, with a further quarter undergoing changes from climate change. Despite the threat of global warming, the wildnature of the planet has remained relatively intact.
The vaquita dolphin, the Javan rhinoceros, and the western lowland gorilla are among the spectacular creatures on Earth. Unfortunately, the Amur leopard, Tasmanian tiger, and dodo are all suffering from unprecedented population pressure. Other cherished species are threatened, including the baiji dolphin and ivory-billed woodpecker. However, the wildnature of the planet is not completely lost. The re-wilding of these animals could pave the way for the protection of our most threatened species.
The dramatic population growth in Africa means that its wildnature is also undergoing rapid change. This continent is set to experience more dramatic change than any other region of the world. According to UN estimates, there are 7.5 billion people on the planet today and 11.2 billion by the end of the century. That means that Africa will grow from its present 1.25 billion people to around four billion people in two hundred years. So, what should we do?
The extinction of the baiji dolphin, the dodo, and the Javan rhinoceros are some of the most spectacular species on Earth. But there are also many other species that have been wiped out by human activity. The world’s largest surviving mammals, like the tigers, are threatened with extinction. The vast majority of the planet’s untouched ecosystems were shaped by the human population.
The global population of the planet is growing fast. Despite this rapid growth, the continent still has plenty of wildlife. The wildnature of the planet is at its most vulnerable in Africa. The current population of Africa is 7.5 billion people, and it is expected to rise to eleven billion by the end of the century. This means that the continent will have four times as many people by 2100. The only thing that will remain unchanged is the species’ habitats.
The wildnature of the planet is becoming increasingly endangered. Its population is rising faster than the population of other parts of the planet, but it is still rich in wildlife. The continent will soon become the most affected. By 2100, there will be 11.2 billion people on the planet, which is more than double the current population. In the meantime, the African continent will become more crowded than the rest of the world. In many areas of the world, the species are becoming extinct.
