Lifted from Wiki: The Holocene extinction, otherwise referred to as the Sixth extinction or Anthropocene extinction, is a current event, and is one of the most significant extinction events in the history of the Earth. The current rate of extinction of species is estimated at 100 to 1,000 times higher than natural background rates.
This large number of extinctions spans numerous families of plants and animals, including mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and arthropods. With widespread degradation of highly biodiverse habitats such as coral reefs and rainforests, as well as other areas, the vast majority of these extinctions are thought to be undocumented, as no one is even aware of the existence of the species before they go extinct, or no one has yet discovered their extinction.
Our generous sponsors will be donating funds to the charity Friends of the Earth, who are dedicated to making the world a better, cleaner, and safer place. They will also be donating some amazing prizes that you have a chance to win.
