A new study, which uses data from a wide range of sources, suggests that humans could be about to cause mass exitinction in ocean wildlife. The study likens the way humans currently use the ocean to the Industrial Revolution. This is bad news, seeing as 500 land-based animal species have become extinct in the last 500 years.

The silver lining to the study: we can stop and reverse the damage if we change our patterns of behaviour.
