Farm animals going extinct

According to a recent United Nations report, approximately 20% of farm animal breeds have been brought to the brink of extinction as world agriculture focuses on only the most productive livestock.

It’s believed that one breed is being lost each month. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) explains that of more than 7,600 breeds in the FAO's global database of farm animal genetic resources, 190 have become extinct in the past 15 years and a further 1,500 are considered at risk of extinction.

Sadly, human activity is causing havoc in God’s creation. The exploitation of animals for our benefit and pleasure has grave consequences; in this case, the disappearance of farm animal breeds. God calls us to live in harmony with all creatures, and to show compassion and love towards all Creation. A transition to a plant-based diet would allow Creation to flourish.
