The Wild Population- About to Die

Introduction: Wild Population is under threat?
A recent report published by WWF Living Report 2018, science-based assessment of health of the planet, says that global wildlife populations have fallen by 60% in just over four decades.

Due to acceleration in pollution, deforestation, climate change and other man-made factors. More than 4, species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians declined rapidly between 1970 and 2014, the report stated.

The report found that 90% of seabirds have plastics in their stomachs, compared with 5% in 1960. L  About half of the world’s shallow-water corals have been lost in the past three decades.
Animal life diminish the most rapidly in the tropical areas of Latin America and the Caribbean, with an 89% fall in populations since 1970, while species that rely on freshwater habitats, like frogs and river fish, declines in population by 83%. The WWF has called agreement, to be drafted to protect wildlife and reverse human impacts on nature.


World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)
It is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) working in the field of the biodiversity conservation, and the reduction of humanity’s footprint on the environment.


Importance of wildlife conservation
Wildlife conservation refers to the well-planned practice of ensuring protection for wild animal species, their habitats, and plants. More or less, the truth about wildlife is that the future generations should be allowed to enjoy the resources of nature while recognizing the unshaken importance if wildlife towards our wellbeing and surroundings.
As wildlife conservation has become a need of the pressing demands which modern people must address, the following are some key point’s sugnifying the importance of conserving wildlife.


Protection of Biodiversity
The Mother Nature requires that different species stay connected by means of various food webs. It means that extinction or demise of one particular species might influence one or more other species down the line.
Conserving wildlife can be preventive step to stay safe prior to any unforeseeable environmental issue.
Wildlife conservation has become an increasingly important practice due it the negative effects of human activity on wildlife. Wildlife species is defined as population of living species that is in the danger of becoming extinct because the species has a very low of falling population, or because they are threatened by varying environmental or prepositional parameters.

How governments, NGOs, media and the public have failed to protect wildlife?
The report has put all the blame on governments, media, NGOs for failing spectacularly to initiate measures even after getting regular warnings. WWF’s 2016 report warned that global wildlife could decline by 67% by the end of this decade as a result of human activities.
2017 UN Environmental Annual Report and the 2018 intergovernmental science-policy platform on biodiversity and Ecosystem services reports said more or less the same thing.
The current efforts to protect the natural world are not keeping up with the speed of man-made destruction, and that the world is heading for an “ecological credit crunch” far worse than the current financial crisis because human are over using the natural resources of the planet.

A way forward
It is an extremely severe issue, earth is dying slowly, this trend will continue unless human being learns to minimize the use of resources and  understands and practices the benefits of recycling/reuse. The wildlife or nature conservation agenda is not only about securing the future of tigers, pandas, whales but for the all amazing diversity of life. It’s bigger than that, earth has been facing destabilized climate, deplted ocean resources and rovers, degraded land and empty forests, all stripped of biodiversity. 
There is an urgent need to take of LOUD and RADICAL actions, government should show concern and make several policies. Lack of awareness is like a disease among common people, more than that large number of population is still illiterate, therefore governments, NGOs and media should find several way to spread awareness about the  severity of the issue. Media can play important role in campaigning across the globe. Then only there can be a ray of hope for protecting wildlife in future.
