Gunther Grant has donated back $1000's to various wildlife species foundations who sell our wildlife line of castings. GNGR will be joining the WWF in 2021 and become a supplier to all the members and their species foundations. There are 1.2 million members in the USA alone who all support the various foundations.
THE PLIGHT OF ENDANGERED SPECIES:
There are now 41,415 species on the IUCN Red List, and 16,306 of them are endangered species threatened with extinction. This is up from 16,118 last year. This includes both endangered animals and endangered plants.
The species endangered include one in four mammals, one in eight birds, one third of all amphibians and 70% of the World's assessed plants on the 2007 IUCN Red List are in jeopardy of extinction. The total number of extinct species has reached 785 and a further 65 are only found in captivity or in cultivation. In the last 500 years, human activity has forced over 800 species into extinction.
The current rate of extinction appears to be hundreds, or perhaps even thousands, of times higher than the background rate. It is difficult to be precise because most of the endangered species which are becoming disappearing species have never been identified by scientists.
Gunther Grant will be creating wildlife castings starting with the most endangered from the WWF list of species.
