The role of man as terminator of species diversity is mostly generalized through weapons of greed and exploitation. All said and done, one cannot deny the fact that the human beings are also adaptive to the natural consequences at all levels, whether it is losing our loved ones, climate change or even extinction of species. This adaptation has created a dangerous world where for man's need to survive (in leisure) comes with a compromise to the natural existence of other species. Remi Chandran, an environmental policy researcher who developed the Wildlife Enforcement Monitoring System initiative while working with the United Nations University, Tokyo in 2005, unravels how human influences, through policies, procedures and actions is paving a way to the sixth great extinction event in the earth's history.
