Human activity kills 500 species in 200

An audit of England’s wildlife has revealed that nearly 500 species of animals and plants have vanished in the past 200

years, The Times reported. The disappearances have been blamed on human activity such as hunting, fishing, loss of

habitat to farming and climate change. “Extinction rates are very high and it’s predominantly down to changes in

land use,” said University of Oxford Professor Kathy Willis.
