It is assumed that Earth is in the middle of the sixth mass extinction, but this time it is different. Unlike earlier mass extinctions caused by natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, natural changes in climate and meteor strikes, this one is caused almost entirely by humans. Ninety-nine per cent of species already threatened by human activities are at risk. Although extinction is a natural occurrence, it typically occurs at approximately one to five species per year. Researchers say the planet is now losing the usual speed up to 1,000 times, with hundreds of species going extinct every day.

After the 1973 law was established more than 1,600 species have been covered. It has been incredibly effective, helping to protect 99 per cent of species protected by the legislation from extinction. This is done by comprehensive initiatives including habitat protection and regeneration, a ban on practices such as hunting and sale, training and care at specialist facilities, and community education. Nevertheless, as of 12 August 2019 the ESA was faced with certain dramatic changes that would endanger many animals, such as giraffes, monarch butterflies and polar bears.
