Oh god, this is disastrous for the tiger and the kiwi. F**king humans are going to destroy every other species on the planet.

Noted. This is a very interesting study. With certain deminishing animal populations problems of inbreeding will
effect many endangered species.. Nature will take its course. In about 50 years time we may not recognise any animals on our planet. The ones we used to grow up with until now are gone or mostly hiding of fear.
