BIRDS OF PRAISE
2018 - Ongoing
1. Scientists estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird and mammal become extinct every 24 hours.
2. Experts calculate that between 0.01 and 0.1% of all species will become extinct each year. If the low estimate of the number of species out there is true - i.e. that there are around 2 million different species on our planet** - then that means between 200 and 2,000 extinctions occur every year.
