Video: Humans Are Driving the Next Mass Extinction

"Species are like a house of cards, you can't just sort of take one card out of the deck and not expect the deck to crumble," said Dr. Michael Novacek, curator of paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History, in this reality-driven video by Racing Extinction.

As the video above clearly shows, human activity is directly linked to mass extinction of the world's most endangered species.

Watch as renowned film director and co-founder of Oceanic Preservation Society, Louie Psihoyos, explains how "there's this incredible web where we're all connected, and when we start to lose these linchpin species, the environment starts to fail."

Watch Swedish Couple Rescue Moose From Frozen Lake

A wild moose in Sweden struggled for its life after falling through the ice on a frozen lake. Fortunately for the moose, a couple came along and worked 30 minutes to rescue it.

Watch this video to see how they did it:

Here's the transcript of what they said in the video:

"På väg mot vaken såg vi älgen göra flera misslyckade försök att ta sig upp själv. Den klarade heller inte att knäcka isen och ta sig in till land på egen hand, så min sambo, Sigrid Sjösteen, började ivrigt hugga upp en ränna in till grundare vatten. Vi turades om att hugga i omkring 30 minuter innan älgen var i säkerhet på land."

And, here's the English translation:

"On our way to the hole, we saw the moose make several attempts at getting out of the water, but it could neither get up nor break the ice to get into shore. My partner, Sigrid Sjösteen, eagerly started to chop a pathway to shallower water, where it could reach the bottom and get out. We took turns chopping for about 30 minutes before the moose was out of danger."
