Save the Species Contest

 

While the Y2K phase and the ‘End of the world 2012’ phase may seem laughable now, here is one revelation that just cannot be taken lightly. According to a recent research article published in Science Advances, a catastrophic mass extinction – the sixth in the planet’s history – is looming large and it is us humans who are to be blamed for this. Are we really surprised at that last bit of information?

 

The process of eating away the planet’s resources began many a decade ago and sadly, continues till date. Our planet comprises water bodies, forests – the flora and fauna present there, the atmosphere and humans. Each of these components needs to work in harmony with each other so as to ensure that the planet thrives instead of slowly wilting away, which is the case of today. Over-exploit or harm one resource, and the Domino effect will be felt to the lowest of level. Earth’s resources stand highly depleted today as the percentage of resources used up daily is more than the planet can sustain. Hence, the mass extinction threat is one that we must heed now, for even now has become too late.

 

Directly or indirectly, our hands are coloured with the blood of many a wildlife species who have been lost due to the negligence and greed displayed by the human race. Why, the co-author of the study published in Science Advances says that “We’re essentially doing to the planet what the meteor did that took care of the dinosaurs.” Probably we aren’t too late, though. Let’s save our planet. Let’s save our species and do our bit towards conserving our home.
