«Είμαστε η πρώτη γενιά που γνωρίζει ότι καταστρέφουμε τον πλανήτη μας και η τελευταία που μπορεί να κάνει κάτι για αυτό», προειδοποίησε η WWF. Η Οργάνωση, στην ετήσια έκθεσή της που δημοσίευσε σήμερα Τρίτη,τονίζει ότι ο πληθυσμός των άγριων ζώων μειώθηκε κατά 60% σε διάστημα 40 ετών.

Οι προσπάθειες που καταβάλλονται για να σωθεί η φύση δεν αρκούν και χρειάζεται «μια παγκόσμια συμφωνία», κατά το πρότυπο της Συμφωνίας του Παρισιού για το Κλίμα, προκειμένου να επιβιώσει ο πλανήτης μας, τονίζει το Παγκόσμιο Ταμείο για τη Φύση στην έκθεσή του “Living Planet”.

Ο πληθυσμός των θηλαστικών, των πτηνών, των ερπετών, των αμφίβιων και των ψαριών μειώθηκε κατά 60% από το 1970 ως το 2014, τονίζει η οργάνωση στην δωδέκατη, ετήσια έκθεσή της, που δημοσιεύθηκε με τη συνεργασία της Ζωολογικής Εταιρείας του Λονδίνου και βασίζεται στην παρακολούθηση 16.700 πληθυσμών (4.000 ειδών).

Η περιοχή της Καραϊβικής/ Λατινικής Αμερικής εμφανίζει τη χειρότερη εικόνα με την εξαφάνιση του 89% του πληθυσμού των άγριων ζώων σε διάστημα 44 ετών. Η Βόρεια Αμερική και η Γροιλανδία είναι στην καλύτερη κατάσταση με μόλις το 23% των άγριων ζώων να έχει χαθεί. Η περιοχή της Ευρώπης, της Βόρειας Αφρικής και της Μέσης Ανατολής καταγράφει απώλειες σε ποσοστό 31%.

Η πρώτη εξήγηση για τη δραματική μείωση των πληθυσμών των άγριων ζώων είναι η απώλεια του φυσικού τους περιβάλλοντος, η εκτεταμένη γεωργία, οι εξορύξεις, η αστικοποίηση, ενέργειες που ενισχύουν την αποψίλωση των δασών και μολύνουν το έδαφος.

Στη Βραζιλία, η οποία μόλις εξέλεξε πρόεδρο τον Ζαΐχ Μπολσονάρου ο οποίος στη διάρκεια της προεκλογικής του εκστρατείας δεν αναφέρθηκε ούτε στην κλιματική αλλαγή ούτε στην αποψίλωση των δασών, το δάσος του Αμαζονίου συρρικνώνεται συνεχώς, όπως και η σαβάνα του Σεράντου, καθώς επεκτείνεται η καλλιέργεια της σόγιας και η εκτροφή βοοειδών.

Σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο μόνο το 25% των εδαφών έχει γλιτώσει από το αποτύπωμα του ανθρώπου, το 2050 θα έχει μειωθεί σε λιγότερο από 10%. Σε αυτό προστίθενται η υπεραλιεία, η μόλυνση, η λαθροθηρία, οι ασθένειες, η κλιματική απορρύθμιση…

«Η ευκαιρία μας»

«Είμαστε η πρώτη γενιά που γνωρίζει ότι καταστρέφουμε τον πλανήτη μας και η τελευταία που μπορεί να κάνει κάτι για αυτό», υπογράμμισε η Τάνια Στιλ στέλεχος της WWF.

«Η κατάρρευση του παγκόσμιου πληθυσμού της άγριας πανίδας είναι ένα προειδοποιητικό σημάδι ότι η φύση πεθαίνει. Όμως αντί να βάλουμε τον πλανήτη σε μηχανική υποστήριξη, του βάζουμε ένα τσιρότο», πρόσθεσε.

Ωστόσο ο καθηγητής Κεν Νόρις, διευθυντής επιστημών στην Ζωολογική Εταιρεία του Λονδίνου, υποστήριξε ότι παρά τα σοκαριστικά στοιχεία «δεν έχει χαθεί κάθε ελπίδα».

«Έχουμε την ευκαιρία να δημιουργήσουμε ένα νέο μονοπάτι για να προχωρήσουμε το οποίο θα μας επιτρέψει να συγκατοικήσουμε με βιώσιμο τρόπο με την άγρια φύση, από την οποία εξαρτόμαστε», δήλωσε.

Προκειμένου να διατηρηθεί η βιοποικιλότητα της Γης για τις επόμενες γενιές η WWF ζήτησε να υπάρξει μια παγκόσμια δέσμευση που θα στηρίζεται από τις κυβερνήσεις και τις επιχειρήσεις σε όλο τον κόσμο.

«Χρειαζόμαστε μια νέα διεθνή συμφωνία, μια νέα παγκόσμια συμφωνία για τη φύση προκειμένου να βοηθήσουμε τις χώρες να αντιμετωπίσουν τις ρίζες του προβλήματος», τόνισε ο Τόνι Τζούνιπερεκτελεστικός διευθυντής της WWF.
