More than 60% of the wildlife on our planet has been lost since the 1970s because of human encroachment on their habitats. If we give space back to nature, animal populations can recover and even flourish. If not, we will be responsible for the extinction of life on our planet. While other animals fade from the Earth, our numbers are swelling. More than seven billion people live on our planet now, together with the farm animals we harvest for food, endangering all life on earth through the destruction of the natural world. Carl Safina, author of many best-selling books about the animals who share our planet, explains how they live and develop culture, and how their world is, like ours, in peril. His most recent book, Becoming Wild, was a New York Times notable book of 2020.
