Animals That May Be Extinct After the Australia Wildfires

Animals That May Be Extinct After the Australia Wildfires | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
Things were already looking grim for countless species on our planet. As the Center for Biological Diversity and other science-backed organizations have been pointing out for the last several years, Earth is undergoing the sixth mass extinction since life forms began developing on it an estimated 3.8 billion years ago, with 1,000 species now disappearing per year. But the latest spate of Australian bushfires, which as of this writing had consumed 15.6 million acres, according to the BBC, have significantly upped that ante. Some already-endangered animals are potentially gone forever and at risk of joining these 14 animals that have gone extinct over the past 100 years.
