Here is a great countdown featuring 10 animals that humans have literally hunted into extinction!
Species going extinct due to human interference, destruction of habitats, and disease are nothing new. But check out this list of 10 animals that went extinct strictly due to over-hunting. In today’s modern world we would call it a “lack of conservation management.”
This countdown is incredible because it shows some species that have disappeared as early as the 1960s.
From the largest species of seacows to the common dodo bird, this countdown shows just how devastating our presence can be on all things wild.
This should be a wake up call as we move forward, making sure that we continue to preserve the natural resources around us so that others in the future are able to enjoy them in abundance as well.
