These Animal Species Went Extinct in 2018 | NowThis

We lost these animal species forever in 2018.
» Subscribe to NowThis:

These are the species that went extinct in 2018. The Spix macaw, which you might recognize as the blue parrot from ‘Rio,’ is now extinct in the wild, due to habitat loss from unsustainable deforestation. Approx. 60 to 80 of the last Spix macaws now live in captivity. The Po’ouli, a songbird native to Hawaii, is suspected to be extinct as well. The last Po’ouli sighting was in 2004. Scientists say there’s just a 0.1 percent chance the bird still exists in the wild, as habitat destruction from invasive species threatened its chances of survival. Alagoas Foliage-gleaner and Cryptic Treehunter are also extinct in the wild due to rapid deforestation in northeastern Brazil. Earth is presently losing animal species at 1,000 to 10,000 the natural rate. Researchers say 30%-50% of the planet’s species could be extinct by 2050. Giraffes are now considered critically endangered, as their population dropped nearly 40% in the last 30 years. Two other animals that will likely face extinction in 2019 are the Vaquita porpoise, which has less than 30 alive in the wild, and the Northern White Rhino, which has two females left, and are incapable of natural reproduction.

That Time It Rained for Two Million Years

Check out our NEW POSTER:

At the beginning of the Triassic Period, with the continents locked together from pole-to-pole in the supercontinent of Pangea, the world is hot, flat, and very, very dry. But then 234 million years ago, the climate suddenly changed for the wetter.

Thanks as always to Nobumichi Tamura for allowing us to use his wonderful paleoart:
