From turtles to fruit bats, migratory species increasingly under threat, says UN
Briefly

A UN expert assessment has found that over 20% of migratory species under international protection are at risk of extinction due to human pollution, invasive species, and the climate crisis.
From humpback whales to Dalmatian pelicans, each year, billions of animals journey with the seasons over oceans, on land and in the skies.
The report also reveals that as much as 97% of sharks, rays, and sturgeons on the protected list are facing a high risk of extinction, with populations declining by 90% since the 1970s.
