I just came across this rather sad list and decided to post it here

www.pixable.com... rral&utm_campaign=zergnet_434454

Its very sad to think about all these animals that are no longer here, and how more and more animals are at risk of this. We still have poaching, over hunting/fishing, habitat loss and so many other things causing us to loose more animals. The other thing that does discourage me is that when you see animals like clams, snails, minnows, and insects you know that probably almost no one even cared about the fact that they were harming them. How ever I know there are people working to help protect animals and would like to hope we are able to save as many as we can.

Your thread title is a little confusing: "Every extinct animal in the past 100 years (since 2014)". One hundred years has not elapsed since 2014. Perhaps you meant "Every extinct animal in the past 100 years (since 1914)" or "Every extinct animal in the past 100 years (including 2014)".

Not all news is bad news

New species found in the last 10 years

Indeed, there are many things that are negative about the loss of an animal species (though I admit the bigger animals effect me more for some reason). The Earth is not a vacuum and plants/animals will come and go as part of the natural order of things.

Should that say 'identified'?
I mean it's not like the new species weren't already there.
See what I mean?
To me extinct means gone.

Thanks for this list. SnF.

Yes unfortunately areas like Australia are much more vulnerable to damage from invasive species

Yes and we've even been lucky enough to rediscover a few we thought were extinct

Many species go extinct naturally. Not always due to human intervention. Also, I'm not sure this is a complete list. Are we saying that only one species per year goes extinct? And what's with the modern hi-res full-color photos of animals that allegedly died out 80 years ago?

ETA 99.9% of species to ever exist on Earth are now extinct. It's just how nature works.

I'm aware that at some point or another everything on the earth will be extinct. However a number of these animals went extinct due to hunting, habitat loss, introduction of new species caused by human activity. We need to try to stop some of the activities that are killing off species. As for the photos I think a lot of them were of taxidermied animals.

You need to add another animal that is heading toward extinction.

It would be safe to say with so many other species in decline its only a matter of time before humans face that same fate. I only hope were able to stop that from happening

I noticed that a lot of the animals were small ones, and not a lot of larger ones like lions, tigers, etc. Most were birds, rodents, frogs, fish, snails.... I'm not down-playing the severity of these animals going extinct by any means, because I think it's terrible and it saddens me. It's just an interesting perspective to see them all lined up in a list that shows a bit of Darwinism at work. We really have no way of knowing if these species were meant to survive or if they were no longer necessary in the overall ecology or driven extinct due to man's doing, although there are a few that we know man was directly involved with their drive toward extinction (rhinos and tigers especially).

S&F OP.

holy crap, i never knew mexico even had grizzlies. and so many muscles and snails, is this due to cultivating for eating?

I am betting there have been millions of species that went extinct before mankind was even walking the Earth. The biggest and strongest often don't survive...it is the adaptability of a species that ensures its continuation.

Probably a lot of these are very specialized species in only a few habitats (which are thought to be more susceptible to extinction). So there is that to this list, but that is what has alarmed some people that if there are many animals that fit that description it could mean there are many others that were wiped out before we even found them.

So, the species most prone to mutation? Makes sense.

You're right about extinction. Many (many) more species have gone extinct than still survive. What's your point?

Sadly yes. That would be truly sad if a whole species died out to make a Viagra substitute
