7 Billion and counting

Did you know that at the end of  last month our planet reached 7 billion humans? Many of us feel that overpopulation and overconsumption are the root causes of environmental destruction. The Center for Biological Diversity (top rated by Charitywatch.org) launched a new national campaign through their web site 7BillionAndCounting.org, a great link for any library to add to  its’ online resources.

Their interactive map, allows users to input a city and state to see a list of threatened and endangered species for that area.

Be sure to check out their page of resources and their one page fact sheet on the topic.
