In biology and ecology, extinction is the end of an organism or of a group of organisms (taxon), normally a species.
More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species, that ever lived on Earth are estimated to be extinct. Estimates on the number of Earth’s current species range from 10 million to 14 million, of which about 1.2 million have been documented and over 86 percent have not yet been described.
This what you can do to prevent species extension:
1.Spread the word to your relatives and social media circle.
- Reduce your carbon footprint.
- Buy products from companies committed to using sustainably produced oil in their products.
- Get involved in helping conservation organizations
According to the United Nations Environmental Program and the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, and International Union for Conservation of Nature, Red List of Threatened Species, Cameroon has 43 endangered mammals. Check out your country endangered mammals here:

Turkey’s environmental performance: 99th among 180 countries …
According the environmental Performance Index conducted by Yale University, Columbia University and World Economic Forum on countries ‘performance on high priority environmental issues Turkey’s environmental performance has taken the 99th place among 180 countries.
When we remember that this same report has published Turkey at the 66’th place in 2014 And knowing all the environmental reforms and actions taken by the Turkish government for the past 2 years, we can seriously analyze this report.
Contradictorily, Turkey received one of the best grades in drinking water and sanitation (85.05%)
Agriculture (87.04%) as my organization called AFROKON was invited to the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock we have effectively discussed and concluded ideas about the Turkish policies on drinking water, sanitation and agriculture.
Therefore, Turkey should do better in other fields (climate and energy=47.77%, biological diversity= 22.53%)so it can define itself as a sustainable emerging country.
We should remember that Cameroon’s environmental performance in 2016 is 136th among 180 countries.
