Study warns: Up to 1 million species are at risk of extinction!
A new study warns that one-third of all animal and plant species on the planet could face extinction by 2070 due to climate change.
Scientists studied recent extinctions which happened because of climate change, so finally to estimate how many species would be lost over the next 50 years.
Researchers from the University of Arizona studied data from 538 species at 581 sites around the world and kept their atentionon plant and animal species that were surveyed at the same sites over time, at least 10 years apart.
More exactly, at a global level, up to 1 million species are at risk of extinction because of human activities, according to a United Nations report released in May. Scientists and experts mention that it is “a mass extinction event” – only the sixth in the past half-billion years – is already underway.
Abi was rescued and adopted by the wildlife specialists at the Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs in Australia about 12 years ago—and she has consistently showed her affection to the rescuers by giving them hugs each day since rescuing her.
Queen Abigail—or “Abi”—was only five months old when she was rescued as a little baby orphan. This is rarely happening when a mother kangaroo is losing her baby, bit when this is happening humans are near to help.
The kangaroo still insists on starting each of her mornings by hugging her human family, in this way thanking them each day for being loved and saved.
Abi is still living in the sanctuary and is being grateful for her life near humans.
The French rooster Maurice, who won the right to sing in court in the morning, died at the age of 6, his owner announced.
Corrine Fesseau, the owner of the rooster, said that Maurice died in early May of Coryza - an infectious disease often found in chickens, informs The Guardian.
"I found him in the hen house, I did everything I could," Fesseau said.
Maurice's owner said she waited to announce the rooster's death because the coronavirus pandemic was more important. "Covid-19 was more important than my rooster. Maurice was an emblem, a symbol of rural life and a hero," said Corinne Fesseau, who buried Maurice in her garden.
The Maurice choir became famous after a retired couple moved to the French island of Oleron and sued the owner of the rooster because Maurice was singing early in the morning and Corrine Fesseau did not silence him.
The case last year became a symbol of the misunderstandings between the rural and the urban population. Many French people in big cities are looking for the countryside for a quiet second home, but not everyone accepts the sounds and smells of these areas.
A court in France rejected in September 2019 the complaint of Corrine Fesseau's neighbors and asked them to pay Corrine damages of 1,000 euros.

WAWI CEO, Richard Müller apologized to all those who felt offended and hoped that "we will not lose our sense of humor even in these difficult times." The company announced that it will donate the chocolate bunnies from sale to charity. The manufacturer of chocolate products from WAWI-Schoko-Welt produces about ten million chocolate Easter hares per year.
Among the critical comments about the chocolate bunnies, one in particular, sounds as following: “Affected by the coronavirus deserve respect and sympathy” and “The coronavirus caused incredible suffering around the world. And here the Easter bunny is named after him.” But there were also positive reviews. Some people liked the idea. "Especially in such difficult times, it's nice to see that businessmen have a sense of humor," one user wrote. Another user writes: “Awesome bunnies! Hamsters would be even better!”
