Tag Archives: Birds in Decline

One in Eight Bird Species Is Facing Extinction

Thirteen percent of birds, or more than 1,000 species  are currently listed as threatened species, and another 9 percent are near threatened. Just under 200 species are critically endangered, meaning they are at an extremely high risk of soon going extinct. Overall 40% of the world’s 11,000 bird species are now in decline.
This biodiversity crisis is due much to deforestation, invasive species, and the use of pesticides for agriculture. The good news it is within our reach to stop this decline.
