One in four mammals risk extinction

Posted on Monday, October 06 2008 @ 23:46:48 CEST by


The Red List of Threatened Species claims populations of more than half of mammalian species are falling and that at least 25% are at risk of extinction:
The Red List of Threatened Species says populations of more than half of mammalian species are falling, with Asian primates particularly at risk.

The biggest threat to mammals is loss of habitat, including deforestation.

But there is good news for the African elephant, whose recovery leads to removal from the high-risk list.

This year's Red List looks at 5,487 mammals, and concludes that 1,141 are currently on the path towards disappearance.

This may be an under-estimate, the authors caution, as there is not enough data to make an assessment in more than 800 cases. The true figure could be nearer to one- third.
