Farm animals going extinct
According to a recent United Nations report, approximately 20% of
farm animal breeds have been brought to the brink of extinction as world
agriculture focuses on only the most productive livestock.
It’s believed that one breed is being lost each month. The UN Food
and Agriculture Organization (FAO) explains that of more than 7,600
breeds in the FAO's global database of farm animal genetic resources,
190 have become extinct in the past 15 years and a further 1,500 are
considered at risk of extinction.

Sadly, human activity is causing havoc in God’s creation. The
exploitation of animals for our benefit and pleasure has grave
consequences; in this case, the disappearance of farm animal breeds. God
calls us to live in harmony with all creatures, and to show compassion
and love towards all Creation. A transition to a plant-based diet would
allow Creation to flourish.
