Once habitat is lost or degraded, a species doesn't just wink out of existence: it takes time, often several generations, before a species vanishes for good.

If only we could see this and actually do something about it. I know the 1% could do incredible things to correct this problem if only they were not so intent on their own greed and ignorance!

"...But, unless URGENT ACTION is taken, the debt will be collected, and these species will vanish for good in the next few decades...."
Yet we don't know just HOW ignorant mankind can get!

This article assumes that humans will come to their senses and stop the destruction of the planet's ecosystems. I don't have that much faith in humanity. I guess time will tell who's right.

They are at a cross-roads. Either they spend more money now to save what have left, or it will be gone forever. What happens to the beast will also happen to man because everything is intertwined. This is what happens when you take from mother nature, she eventually will make you repay your debt and it will cost you a whole lot more than if you just took care of it in the first place.

Thanks Cal.....this is very scary and heartbreaking. Man needs to stop cutting down all the trees and destroying the forest and causing the extinction of all the animals. They better stop and think about when all the trees are gone, what are they going to do then? They need to stop the greed and destruction. Start planting trees and hopefully, there will still be a forest for the animals. Use some common sense!!!!
