Mammal-Extinction Zones Mapped Out

A map reveals where mammal species have the highest risk for future extinction, according to a new study...

Among the most prominent of the 20 hotspots of possible extinction are the forests and tundra of northern Canada and Alaska, and the chain of islands stretching from Indonesia to the South Pacific.

This map is talking in terms of 'decades to come' - but if we already have a good idea that this could potentially happen in the near future..... what's to stop us doing something to prevent it HERE and NOW?

Well I hope this study raises more than just a few eyebrows...
