The extinct Tasmanian tiger
i cant believe that we allowed an animal which was alive so recently that we have videos of it to go extinct
In a way you’d think that in these modern times we wouldn’t possibly let an animal go extinct but this is a very dangerous way of thinking - and is exactly why we may find species are to become extinct in the near future. For example a tiger like the Sumatran is said to become extinct by just next year, but people will not act significantly enough because they don’t believe that we would let something like that happen.
But in reality, there are already so many animals that are extinct from the wild, like the giant tortoise or species of deer, and so many heading to extinction like the Amur Leopard, where only 45 are said to remain, and the Javan Rhino, where there are no more than 50 and none in captivity.
and lets not forget the Northern White Rhino, where literally 4 remain.
It is so important to act while they are still with us.
THANK YOU ^^^
Are you really shocked that we have video footage of extinct species? The Western Black Rhino was declared extinct LAST YEAR. Not to mention there is a background extinction rate (naturally occurring and seen in fossil evidence) of 1 species per million species per year, or 10-100 species annually. This is exacerbated by human activity, which has raised the rate of extinction to possibly 27,000 species lost every year due only to habitat degradation in rain forests, and anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 every year at the top of global species estimates.
Species loss is about more than just zoo animals. We lose countless species every year due to human activity, dismantling the balance of the biosphere.
I’m so fed up with people. But mostly women.
If I say “hey let’s get a drink sometime” and you ask me when and I say “idk yet, but we will figure out a day.” That’s not me playing games. That’s me not knowing yet. Difficult concept, I know.
