    Wildlife traditionally refers to uninhabited animal species, but has come to include all plants, fungi, and other organisms that grow or live wild in an area without being introduced by humans.Wildlife can be found in all ecosystems. Deserts, forests, rain forests, plains, grasslands and other areas including the most developed urban areas, all have distinct forms of wildlife. The global wildlife population has decreased by 52 percent between 1970 and 2014, according to a report by the WWF. Today, hunting, fishing, and gathering wildlife is still an important food source in some parts of the world. The rate of extinctions of entire species of plants and animals across the planet has been so high in the last few hundred years it is widely believed that we are in the sixth great extinction event on this planet. The four most general reasons that lead to destruction of wildlife include overkill, habitat destruction, fragmentation, and impact of introduced species and chains of extinction. We can save wild life by doing reforestation, make the enviroment clean and green, stop the overhunting and many more ways.
