    Sorry maybe I'm reading it the wrong way but I take this as trying to minimise her feelings about the planet and the state it's in. We do everything we can. The message these kids get though does stress them. When I was a kid I didn't have a care about any of this. Do you have school age children who worry about the environment, the earth, and global warming? I want her to worry about when her teeth will fall out, whether the tooth fairy will come, and stuff like that.

    That link didn't really have any info on it. No population numbers.
    Do your own research then.

She genuinely worries about the world and the damage she personally might be doing to it.

    I really feel for kids these days. They really do carry a burden.
    I was exactly the same as a child, it can def be a burden but that drive and passion for it might lead her to a fulfilling career when she's older trying to make a difference. Sometimes you carry that flame from very young and studying/working in that field gives you a tiny feeling that you are trying to change the course of things like extinction. She sounds like a very switched on kid

    I agree though, it is harder for these kids today with so many things to worry about.

    I was the same as a kid. Maybe she could write some letters about things she's particularly worried about, or when she's old enough get her involved in an enviro group that has tree planting or restoring habitat, or cleaning rubbish. Might make her feel a bit like she's doing something to help and ease her worries.

    I'd rather just have the too separate. I'm not looking for a bear version of a labordoodle

    I was exactly the same. I used to write letters to the WWF. I don't think it's a bad thing. She has empathy and wants to make a change.

    Ok. According to PBSG the current numbers are estimated to be 20000-25000.
    This is the same population as it was in 2005. So it sounds like they are steady. Although some areas are increasing (like Hudson Bay) and some decreasing.

    Yep. As I mentioned before, I don't study endangered species.
    Which species had you seen the effect of climate change on?
