Scientists are predicting that one-third of land animals could suffer dramatic losses over the course of the century due to one awful thing…
Even worse is that over half of all plants could be hit just as hard as their environments become unsuitable for their disposition.
As different ecosystems begin to collapse, there will be major consequences to us humans.
The Chicago Department of Aviation has awarded a contract for sustainable grazing services for Chicago International Airport.
That means that instead of paying humans to take care of their lawns, they're going to have a herd of goats take care of it!!
Yes, that's a real thing that's going to be happening!
Bumblebees always seem the friendliest of all the bees!
They usually don't sting, and they look kind of funny as they bumble along.
But apparently it's hard out there for a bumblebee!
Here's some TERRIFYING bumblebee info from a recent science-tastic report:
Awww!! Poor guy must've been so scared and confused!
There was a large earthquake in China's Sichuan province on Saturday.
Video from the Bifengxia Giant Panda Reserve shows a panda running for cover once the ground begins shaking.
He tries to climb a tree but is shaken to the ground.
No pandas were injured in the quake and now they're receiving extra food and attention from their handlers to help calm them.
Check out the video (above) to see how a panda reacts to a serious earthquake.
The Obama administration is considering using seismic air gun blasts to search for oil and gas under the ocean seabed.
The problem with this is that the blasts are 100,000 times louder than a jet engine and they'd occur every 10 seconds for months!!
There's a very good chance that 138,500 whales and dolphins will be injured and maybe even killed by these blasts.
Luckily, they have Ted Danson fighting for them. He said:
Almost exactly one year ago, James Cameron traveled to the Challenger Deep.
The Challenger Deep is the lowest point in the Mariana Trench… 7 miles down!!
Now, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has announced that Cameron is partnering with them to advance ocean sciences.
The illegal wildlife trade is literally a multibillion-dollar industry!
The same type of trafficking that's almost made tigers extinct is now threatening great apes!
Chimps, orangoutangs, gorillas and bonobos are all being plucked from their natural habitats and bought by private collectors or disreputable zoos.
The numbers are cray cray!
