Humans need to stop spawning like salmon

From Population Connection:

Population growth stretches natural resources to their limits. Deforestation, food and water shortages, and climate change are all intensified by the addition of nearly 80 million people a year to the world's population.

According to the United Nations, the global population could be as high as 11 billion in 2050 or as low as 8 billion, if the right programs are put in place now. Population Connection strives for the world to achieve the lower projection - for the sake of the environment itself and for the people who depend upon it.
