These are good news, according to Treehugger, tiger populations in India has been increasing by 58 percent since 2006. These are especially good news as the country is home to 70 percent of the world’s tiger populations.

We have all read news on how our civilization with deforestation, pollutions of all kinds and climate change – and more – is wiping off entire species of animals to the point that we may be on the verge of a great extinction. But don’t worry, some animals have no problem with global warming temperatures : … Read more
To TreeHugger and Science Daily, protecting a mere 17 percent of the land surfaces against human exploitation would protect two third of the plant species. However, there is a catch as we have to protect the right places… So if we have to protect the most of our biodiversity, we have to find a way … Read more

” 8.7 million, according to the study, which was recently published in the journal PLoS Biology. But the amazing thing is, we’ve only actually ‘discovered’ 86% of them – and thousands of them will be extinct before we do. “
Oddly enough, despite oceans are covering over 70 percent of our planet, there are home to less than a third of all species… This can be explained by the huge amounts of insects on land.
