Most of you know I am continuing my studies at University on Zoology.

I am currently studying for exams and I just read this in one of my readings. It really struck a cord, as do most statistics I hear on extinction numbers due to human land use :( 

"Tucking it’s wings, a bird lands on a branch deep inside a tropical jungle. Sensing the motion, a conservation biologist scans the branch through binoculars, a glimpse of golden orange stopping her short. Staring back is a new species of smokey honeyeater (bird), never previously described by science. This bird still awaits a scientific name. In 2005, a team of American, Indonesian and Australian biologists experienced many moments like this as they spent a month cataloguing the living riches hidden in a remote mountain range in Indonesia. In addition to the honeyeater, they discovered dozens of new frog, butterfly, and plant species, including five new palms. To date, scientists have discovered 1.8 million species of organisms. Some biologists estimate about 10 million more species currently exist. Some of the greatest concentrations of species are found in the tropics. Unfortunately, tropical rainforests are being cleared at an alarming rate to make room for and support a burgeoning human population. Rate of deforestation in Indonesia are among the highest in the world. What will become of the smokey honeyeater and other newly discovered species in Indonesia if such deforestation continues? 
We have physically altered nearly half of the earths land surface and we use over half of all accessible surface fresh water. In the Oceans, stocks of most major fisheries are shrinking because of overharvesting. By some estimates, we are pushing more species towards extinction than the large asteroid or comet that triggered mass extinctions at the close of the cretaceous period 65.5 million years ago”

This makes me so sad. There’s going to be a huge consequence for what humans are doing to this planet. 

I am hoping to work in conservation once my studies are complete.
