WWF warns of most massive extinction since the age of the dinosaurs

In the next decade, the planet & nbsp; may experience the most & nbsp; mass extinction & nbsp; animals & nbsp; since the era of dinosaurs, writes & nbsp; Daily Mail & nbsp; with reference to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

< p> About 40 thousand species are on the verge of extinction. Under attack – & nbsp; African elephants, polar bears, some sharks, frogs and fish.

Over the past 30 years, as indicated in & nbsp; WWF, the African forest elephant population has declined by 86%. Polar bears are threatened by massive melting of Arctic glaciers, and a number of marine life will become extinct due to overfishing, ocean pollution and shrinking reefs. & Nbsp;

Earlier, geophysicists from the University of Connecticut expressed the opinion that & nbsp; cause & nbsp; the extinction of dinosaurs on Earth could not be cold, but an acute lack of sunlight.
