A new study has shown that three quarters of the world’s big carnivores – including lions, wolves and bears are declining in number. The information has shown a majority now occupy less than half of their former ranges. The loss of this habitat and prey and persecution by humans has created many areas which have declining large animals.
The researchers say the loss of these species could be extremely damaging for ecosystems the world over. The research looked at 31 big meat eaters and found that they were under increasing pressure in the Amazon, South East Asia, southern and East Africa due to deforestation and poaching.
The scientists undertaking the research say that much of the problem comes from an old fashioned notion that predators are harmful and will attack humans, however this is often not the case.
