World's large carnivores being pushed off map

3 posts in this topic

Six of the world's large carnivores have lost more than 90% of their historic range, according to a study.

The Ethiopian wolf, red wolf, tiger, lion, African wild dog and cheetah have all been squeezed out as land is lost to human settlements and farming.

Reintroduction of carnivores into areas where they once roamed is vital in conservation, say scientists.

This relies on human willingness to share the landscape with the likes of the wolf.

That land is human land, too. We're land animals.

All coincidences aside for a minute.

Some desperate and fearful times ahead for those beautiful creatures. So sad.

Will the true guardians of the land please stand up!
