Losing Life on Earth - how do stop the loss of wildlife?

Organization: 

During our planet’s 4.5 billion-year history, there have been five large species’ extinction events. Today in the Anthropocene (a new era shaped by humans) we are witnessing a sixth mass extinction. Globally, wildlife populations have declined by 58% since 1970. The things driving this unprecedented decline - habitat loss, climate change, pollution, and human use - are due to human activities, especially since the industrial revolution. It’s up to us to turn things around.
