Can you really imagine how many animals are killed each day?
More than 200 million animals are killed for food around the world every day – just on land. Including wild-caught and farmed fishes, we get a total closer to ” 3 billion animals killed daily “. That comes out to 72 billion land animals and over 1.2 trillion aquatic animals killed for food around the world every year. Each year over 30,000 elephants are poached for their ivory; just 4% of wild tigers remain compared to a century ago; an African rhino is poached every eight hours; and more than 1 million pangolins have been traded illegally since 2000, making them the most trafficked wild mammal in the world

The majority of the 8.7 million are animals, with progressively smaller numbers of fungi, plants, protozoa (a group of single-celled organisms) and chromists( algae and other micro-organisms)
