LITTLE ROCK, Ark.
— The world’s best lakes are vanishing at a record rate, according to the World Wildlife Fund, which tracks global extinction rates.
Lake Mead, Colorado’s largest, was the last lake to reach the global tipping point of extinction in 2014, and its death toll has increased since then.
The world has lost more than 4.5 million lakes, which represent about 0.6% of all lakes worldwide, according the group.
While the number of lakes on Earth has declined by more than 90% since 1950, Lake Mead alone accounts for about 6% of lakes worldwide.
Its decline is accelerating as the world continues to pump billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the lake has been forced to retreat in some places.
This is happening in countries like India and China, where the number and size of lakes has grown exponentially.
And even as Lake Mead is disappearing, other lakes are showing signs of recovery.
In recent years, the U.S. has recovered from record levels of CO2 in its lakes and the amount of CO 2 in its water has increased significantly.
At the same time, a large portion of the world’s lakes are not recovering as quickly as Lake Mungo, a lake in the Netherlands, which is in a lake that is also the world record for the largest lake on Earth.
It is not just Lake Mead, however, that is showing signs that lakes are recovering, the group says.
For instance, in 2012, a study of lake sediments in the Andes in Peru found that they contained less CO2 than before the drought of 2012.
Another recent study found that a number of European lakes, including Lake Vincennes in France and Lake Lough Calf in Wales, had also seen significant increases in lake growth and the release of CO².
“Lake Lough is a very important lake in France, which has one of the largest populations of humans on Earth,” said Kristin Sjostrom, the head of the Global Lakes program at WWF, which focuses on lakes and water.
These lakes are crucial to our economy, our water supply, our food production, and our climate, she said.
Lakes are also critical to biodiversity, which affects our health and well-being.
They provide habitat for birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and other wildlife, and they are key to the ecosystems that support us and the environment around us.
If we want to preserve these habitats, we need to work together to protect them and make sure that our efforts are aligned with the conservation of these species,” she said, referring to the worldwide effort to preserve species in threatened or endangered states.
