How meat causes extinction

According to the WWF, 60% of Earth’s wildlife has been wiped out in just 50 years, both plants and animals. The leading cause of extinction is loss of habitat due to land clearing – and the vast majority of land is cleared either to graze cattle or to grow feed for farmed animals. As the human appetite for meat increases, ever more species-rich habitats are being cleared.
