AI Generated Summary

The rapid extinction of many species, including birds, is leading some scientists to label this period as the sixth mass extinction in Earth’s history.

A study published in Nature Communications, which analyzed known bird extinction records and used models to fill in gaps in the fossil record, suggests that humans have been enabling species extinction for over 100,000 years.

This suggests that the current extinction crisis is primarily caused by human activities, unlike past mass extinctions which were natural events.
