26 Animals Brought Back from the Brink of Extinction #infographic

Earth is expected to be in the middle of the sixth mass extinction but this time it's different. Like previous mass extinctions caused by natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, global climate change, and meteor strikes, this one is almost entirely caused by humans. Ninety-nine per cent of animals currently at risk from human activities. Though extinction is a natural phenomenon, it normally occurs at about one to five species a year. Researchers say the world is now losing up to 1,000 times its normal pace, with hundreds of species becoming extinct each day.

More than 1,600 animals have been protected since the legislation was implemented in 1973. This was extremely successful and helped conserve 99 per cent of species protected from extinction by the legislation. That is achieved by holistic programs like habitat conservation and restoration, a ban on activities including hunting and trading, specialist facilities training and treatment, and community education. However, as of 12 August 2019, the ESA faced some drastic changes that would threaten other species including giraffes, monarch butterflies and polar bears.
