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 ^^^

The Baiji river dolphin is another recently endangered (or considered so) species as of 2006. :(  There are a ton of conservation efforts that just don’t have the support they need, be it monetary or governmental.

And to add to the OP’s post here is a link to a video with more Thylacine/Tasmanian Tiger footage.

Can I add the Javan Tiger  and the Caspian Tiger because *sob*

Here are some studies for a piece that I plan to make for my MFA thesis show. These sculptural objects are made from PVA glue, in which two skin-like pieces are sewn together, encapsulating objects inside. They were inspired by pseudogenes (dead genes), vestigial organs, and obsolete technology. Then I drowned one, and documented its disintegration…just for fun!
