Scientists, using a computer model, investigated the rate of extinction of various animal species and studied information about fossils and early extinctions that occurred on the planet. This made it possible to predict the future.

As it turned out, after some time, the Earth will lose about 550 species of animals representing the natural history of the planet. Animals will be lost forever. Species extinction has nothing to do with global warming, according to scientists. Most animals can still be saved.
