As aforementioned these animals or birds have gone extinct in the last 100 years so what will be the next 100 years be like? Climate Change,habitat loss, and human activities are some of the factors that have led to the mass extinction of many animal species. And if no hasty actions are taken, future generations may never see some of the species we get to see now. For example think about the black rhino is killed every 16 Hours and there are only 6 847 left so bu the next 100 years they will definitely be extinct

yellow-breasted songbird that used to live in the southeastern US and Cuba, was declared endangered in 1967 and the last unconfirmed sighting was in Florida in 1977. Deforestation, land-clearing, and hurricanes may have wiped out Bachman’s warbler, which was once the rarest songbird in the US, for good.
In their heyday, Tasmanian tigers were the world’s largest marsupials. Tasmanian tigers were the largest marsupial predators before they became extinct. Like dingo dogs, Tasmanian tigers ranged in length from 39 to 51 inches. That’s about the size of a medium-sized doGovernment bounties in the 19th and early 20th centuries made hunting Tasmanian tigers all the more appealing. Eventually, this systematic slaying decimated the species, and as a result, the thylacine has been presumed extinct for the last 87 years.
This bear was from North Africa and the only bear in Africa! They were said to be herbivorous. They became extinct because thousands were hunted for sport from the time of the Roman Empire in Africa (starting 146 BCE) onwards.

Deforestation, land-clearing, and hurricanes may have wiped out Bachman’s warbler, which was once the rarest songbird in the US, for good. Ur had previously been named endangered in 1967.Bachman’s Warblers is possibly extinct, and was most likely never common. The last confirmed sightings were in 1988 and before that in 1961 in South Carolina according to the earthlife website https://earthlife.net/bachmans-warblers/

It’s said to be a possiblr extinct species of freshwater dolphin native to the Yangtze river system in China. It is thought to be the first dolphin species driven to extinction due to the impact of humans.

In China, the species is also called the Chinese river dolphin, Han river dolphin, Yangtze dolphin and whitefin dolphin. Since 2022 it has been Twenty years before any reports on the sightings of these dolphins. Before 1900, there was a The primary factor driving this decline was probably unsustainable bycatch in local fisheries, particularly rolling hook long-lines, together with wider-scale habitat degradation and pollution. Early on in the industrialisation process baijis were hunted for meat, oil and leather.population around 3,000 to 5,000 individuals. Now there may be less than 10 and possibly extinct.
Well that’s it from me find out more and share do we know that the repercussions of climate change and our everyday actions are real.
See you next year
