DescriptionData visualisation of the year (small newsroom, large newsroom). Animal species are going extinct anywhere from 100 to 1,000 times the rates that would be expected under natural conditions – rivaling those during the mass extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, Anna Flagg reports. In a stunning data visualization for ProPublica, Flagg lays out which animals across four categories – mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds – are most at risk for extinction over the next 100 years due to a variety of human-caused effects including climate change, habitat destruction, and species displacement.
