Over the next decade, the planet & nbsp; might experience the greatest & nbsp; mass extinction animals & nbsp; since the era of dinosaurs, writes & nbsp; Daily Mail & nbsp; with reference to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
About 40,000 species are on the brink of extinction. Under attack – & nbsp; African elephants, polar bears, some sharks, frogs and fish.
Over the past 30 years, as reported in the & nbsp; WWF, Africa's forest elephant population has declined by 86%. Polar bears are threatened by the massive melting of Arctic glaciers, and a number of marine life will be lost due to overfishing, ocean pollution and shrinking reefs. & Nbsp;
Earlier, geophysicists from the University of Connecticut expressed the opinion that & nbsp; cause & nbsp; the extinction of the dinosaurs on Earth could not have been the cold, but an acute lack of sunlight.
