I came across this on the science daily site


for the original journal article please see




the article is written for a intelligent popular audience  and attempts to explain the reason  why plant and animal species are on the IUCN endangered red  list.


The red list now goes to over 8,000 species and can be largely accounted for by over exploitation in the wild  and agriculture.  Climate change is another reason with much potential for future concern.


I urge people to read the article

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
