access to power and its responsible use. Social justice today is making efforts for gender, racial and social equality,
for advocating justice for migrants, prisoners, the physically, mentally disabled and the environment.
Species across land, rivers, and seas are decimated as humans kill for food in unsustainable numbers and destroy
habitats!!! The number of wild animals on Earth has halved in the past 40 years, according to a new analysis.
Creatures across land, rivers and the seas are being decimated as humans kill them for food in unsustainable
numbers while polluting or destroying their habitats, the research by scientists at WWF and the Zoological Society of
The steep decline of animal, fish and bird numbers was calculated by analyzing 10,000 different populations,
covering 3,000 species in total. This data was then, for the first time, used to create a representative “Living Planet
