Description

I dare you to watch this and not get the feels. Rare and moving footage of six extinct animals taken before they were wiped out. It also features an eye watering list of every animal that has gone extinct since 1900.

1. Heath Hen - Extinct 1932

Heath hens in courtship rituals at the island of Martha's Vineyard in 1926 or 1927. This is the only known surviving footage of the heath hen. The film was made seven years before the bird went extinct due to mass hunting.

2. Thylacine - Extinct 1936

The thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial, also known as the Tasmanian tiger or the Tasmanian wolf. It was native to Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea. It became extinct due to hunting, disease, dogs and habitat loss.

3. Laysan Crake - Extinct 1944

The Laysan crake was a flightless bird from the Hawaiian Islands. It was wiped out in 1944 by habitat loss and war.

4. Golden Toad - Extinct 1989

The golden toad was last sighted in 1989 in Costa Rica, and is now believed to be extinct. This toad displays extreme sexual dimorphism - large size and appearance differences between the sexes. It died out due to habitat loss and a fungus disease.

5. Baiji Dolphin - Extinct 2006

The Baiji Dolphin's extinction is somewhat in dispute. A film taken in 2007 was tentatively verified as showing the Baiji Dolphin, however, it has not been seen since and has been declared functionally extinct. It vanished due to overfishing.

6. Western Black Rhino - Extinct 2011

The Western Black Rhino was found mostly in Cameroon, Africa, and was believed to be genetically different to other subspecies. During the 1900s it was the most common species of rhino. It was wiped out do to poaching.
