ARTICLE: Big or small, cats find themselves in the line of fire

By the time you finish reading this column, one of our planet’s unique species will have become extinct. Yes, it has reached this stage.

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), this is at least 100 times the natural rate of extinction. One in four of the world’s mammals are threatened with extinction, and so are one in eight birds, one in five sharks, one in four coniferous trees and one in three amphibians.
