Recently Extinct Animals
Last updated 14 days ago
The unprecendented growth of humankind has been balanced out by a rash of animal extinctions in recent times. The "Holocene Exctinction" or "the 6th Exctinction" has seen the loss of 875 species between 1500 and 2009, according to the IUCN. This Collection documents some of the animal species that have been extirpated and serves as a reminder of the need to preserve and promote biodiversity.
