Extinction Pin

All proceeds from the sale of this enamel pin are donated to the Sierra Club to benefit the preservation of our planet.

The average lifetime of a species is estimated to be between 1–10 million years. In 1998, 400 biologists were surveyed by New York's American Museum of Natural History. Nearly 70% believe that the Earth is currently in the stages of a human-caused mass extinction known as the Holocene extinction. In 2002, it was estimated that if current rates of human destruction of the biosphere continue, one-half of all plant and animal species of life on Earth will be extinct in 100 years. Don't you love accessories with an ominous message? Get the conversation going with this soft enamel pin for a good cause. Wear the facts: Over 98% of all documented species are now extinct.

Available in Gold and Black.
