Impacts of pollution on species at EU level
- Non-threatened marine mammals (80 % of species) and threatened dragonflies (more than 70 % of species) and are the groups most impacted by pollution.
- Proportionately, threatened species (more than 30 %) are impacted more than non-threatened species (less than 5 %) in butterflies; significantly more than in any other group.
- For amphibians (over 70 %) and marine mammals (80 %) non-threatened species are impacted by pollution proportionately more than threatened species.
