Environment: the Acceleration Process of Extinction

It is known that the life on Earth is in danger, but the scale of this threat is difficult to assess even for specialists. The anthropogenic activity erases dozens of species daily from the face of the planet. It should be remembered that throughout the existence of our planet such a phenomenon as mass extinction is not for the first time. Scientists from the University of Arizona found that high extinction rate not only among people of all ages and ages, but also among animals, caused by the processes of human life (Giraudeau, Sepp, Ujvari, Ewald & Thomas, 2018).

Scientists believe that the acceleration process is facilitated by factors such as pollution of the atmosphere and hydrosphere by industrial waste, radiation, soil contamination with plastic and active use of pesticides. Among other things, health problems are provoked by the active construction of lighting devices on city streets, knocking down circadian rhythms and provoking hormonal changes, increasing the risk of developing cancer. According to the findings of scientists, the human body is much more fragile and susceptible to serious diseases than most animal species, and it is almost impossible to save the human species from extinction while maintaining current levels of environmental poisoning.

Plants and animals that are on the verge of extinction and participate in food chains of mankind do not receive sufficient attention and protection. At the same time, animals and plants that could be used in agriculture are also threatened with extinction.

The solution to the problem can be the use of less common food crops and animals in food. In the global sense, extinction is the loss of a certain ecosystem. However, now the extinction of certain species directly threatens people. In order to stop the extinction of wild species of animals and plants, constant analysis of data on species, their habitats and threats is needed. All this takes huge efforts at all levels of human society, from individual to global.
