Extinct in your lifetime?

By 2050 30 to 50 percent of all the world's species could be heading towards extinction.

Human activity is accelerating the rate of extinction by up to 10,000 times its natural rate.

Fewer than 5,000 Eastern Gorillas are left alive and by 2050 it is estimated there could be under 350 due to war and poaching.

However, in some areas conservation efforts have slowly increased the numbers of critically endangered species like the Black Rhino.
