Cling­ing to ex­is­tence: Crit­i­cally-en­dan­gered an­i­mals

Animal Scene - - CONTENTS - by Nate Martinez

Pre­vi­ously, we talked about a hand­ful of an­i­mals who bid their fi­nal farewell be­cause of the first mass ex­tinc­tion event on earth caused by hu­mans. This time, let's talk about the an­i­mals who can still be spared from the same fate.

It's time to pull the brakes while we still can.

Some of the an­i­mals hu­mans have al­ready driven to ex­tinc­tion in­clude the Stellar’s sea cow, Dodo bird, and the West African black rhi­noc­eros, ac­cord­ing to a 2016 ar­ti­cle by Onekind­planet.
