10 Percent of Birds to Go Extinct

According to a report featured on CNN, 10 percent of all bird will be extinct by the end of this century. The information comes from a report compiled by a team at Stanford University in California. They report that climate and environmental change shows that at least 1,200 species of birds will be gone by 2100.

Only 1.3 percent of bird species have gone extinct since 1500, the report says, and the global number of individual birds is estimated to have experienced a 20 percent to 25 percent reduction during the same period.

According to CNN, “In November the World Conservation Union reported that it found 12 percent of all bird species were threatened with extinction, along with nearly one-fourth of the world’s mammals, a third of amphibians and 42 percent of all turtles and tortoises.”

Should we be worried? Nah.
