Are humans the biggest factor in most species going extinct?

    Undoubtedly this is the case. Around 100,000 years ago, coinciding with the evolution of modern humans, the extinction rate of animals increased to 100-1000 times the rate seen in the recent fossil record. Most of the mega-fauna (large versions of modern animals like Saber Toothed tigers, Mammoths, etc) extinctions are now attributed to human hunting. The current extinction is known as the Holocene extinction event and is being compared to previous mass extinction events such as the theorized meteor extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs.
