A Stop-Motion Animated Lesson About Mass Extinction Events and When The Next Could Occur

TED-Ed lesson by Matthew Borths and Adam Pritchard of the Past Time podcast and Mike D’Emic looks at past mass extinction events, their causes, and what they can teach us about preventing the next one. Evidence strongly shows that humans are having a considerable impact on the environment and other species, which could lead to another mass extinction event if left unchecked. However, as the trio points out in the video, humanity’s ability to impact the environment could also be used to protect a biologically diverse future.
