10 Animals That Went Extinct in 2013

One of the last known photos of the Formosan Clouded Leopard, this vest made of its pelt, underscores the human role in species extinction.

‘Our extinction crisis continues; 2013 allowed us to safely conclude that we will never again see the animals listed below…

It is just unfathomable, if not unconscionable, that we are responsible for causing a single species to completely disappear from the planet forever. Yet, we continue to do so over and over again. Extinct species have no future, they are gone to us and everyone that comes after us.

Let’s hope that our 2014 list is shorter than this year’s.’ (Living Alongside Wildlife)
