Losing The Wilds

Yellow Wagtail by Manish Ahuja

Sunday, December 12, 2021 (December’s fullest moon [“Cold Moon”] rises on the 18th.)

Today, a quick hello before it gets time to leave for work.

I’ve something on my mind. More proof of the devastating influence of humans on our environment.

We’ve long been aware that wild birds in large numbers are diminishing. Now, after analyzing 92 percent of extant bird species, scientists have found that no single avian species numbers more than l.6 billion individuals. This is remarkable.

First, because it implies that humans, despite weighing more than common birds, outnumber every single bird species.

Second, because studies show that humans are fostering huge numbers of farmed chickens. In 2019, these avian species, numbering 25.9 billion, prove that chickens are now Earth’s most common bird species.

Humans are the reason many bird populations in nature are declining. Just as every year, human consumption of farmed chickens is rising.

One thought on “Losing The Wilds

  1. Agree. Have been worried for years about the growing numbers of humans. Believe that the humans (politicians) who want to outlaw birth control are demented.
