Hedgehogs now a rare garden sight as British populations continue to decline

Hedgehogs now a rare garden sight as British populations continue to decline | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it
This story includes ideas and links for steps to take to support wildlife. Unfortunately, it does not mention the big step, human population control.
Garry Rogers's insight:
Worth noting that even in developed countries with slowing population growth, wildlife continues to decline. In Britain, many people do small things to make their gardens more wildlife friendly. However, habitat loss and farming continue to cut carrying capacity for most wildlife species. Hedgehog and other species' declines are accelerating, suggesting that many wildlife populations are no longer self-sustaining and are falling toward extinction. The Guardian story below includes ideas and links for steps to take to support wildlife. Unfortunately, it does not mention the big step, human population control. Without drastic efforts to cut our needs and begin returning the land and seas to their natural state, most of Earth's wildlife species will disappear (more on human population impact).

Endangered Species Condoms

Endangered Species Condoms | GarryRogers Biosphere News | Scoop.it

The world’s population now numbers more than 7 billion, and we add another 227,000 people to the planet every day. More people means less room for wildlife. The Endangered Species Condoms Project provides people with a unique, engaging way to talk about the connection between human population growth and the extinction crisis.

Garry Rogers's insight:

Sign up to participate in the endangered species program.  The massive human population and its resource use are responsible in our time for the great extinction of plants and animals.  In all our endeavors for wildlife protection, we must never forget that the problems we see are often just symptoms of human overpopulation.
