The 6th Mass Extinction
Top causes of current extinctions would be over hunting animals like elephants because they are about to be extinct. Also destruction of habitat and what's causing that, are humans. Another cause would be population- carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides. Mostly all those things are most likely caused by humans. All of these factors work in synergy with each other, causing the fastest rate of extinction ever seen. Large bodied animal and rare species are more prone to the changes caused by humans to the planet. Extinctions can disrupt our ecological processes like pollination and seed distribution and a collapse of the food chain which can cause more extinctions.
