Scientific study proves most of Earth’s land endangered by humans

Reading Time: < 1 minute


More than half of the land was found to be critically endangered by a report submitted in a US-based journal, Global Change Biology. The report found that only five percent of land remains free of human impacts. Christina Kennedy, one of the report’s authors, told Al Jazeera that the climate change exacerbated by development could destroy a lot of the services that nature provide that are essential for our food supply like clean water, flood mitigation and pollination service. The recommends that the land that falls between wild and urban also must be tended to because rapid development spurred by population growth has resulted in more such land. The report says that there is a need for increased regulation and proactive landscape planning to maintain a healthy ecosystem.
