life support is gone for many species

The Sumatran Orangutan is Critically Endangered due to forest clearance for palm oil plantations:
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0912152659.htm

"There are now 41,415 species on the IUCN Red List and 16,306 of them are threatened with extinction, up from 16,118 last year. The total number of extinct species has reached 785 and a further 65 are only found in captivity or in cultivation. "

That's only one species going extinct every TWO DAYS!!!
