Io, che sono abituata ad aspettarmi il peggio, non ho paura di perderti. Puoi dimenticarmi, abbandonarmi, lasciarmi, sarai sempre mio e solo mio. Ti ho inventato io, amore mio. Sei molto più che il mio amante.
Sei una mia creatura.
È per questo che mi appartieni, quasi tuo malgrado.

Why work when you can steal?
The extinct Tasmanian tiger
i cant believe that we allowed an animal which was alive so recently that we have videos of it to go extinct
In a way you’d think that in these modern times we wouldn’t possibly let an animal go extinct but this is a very dangerous way of thinking - and is exactly why we may find species are to become extinct in the near future. For example a tiger like the Sumatran is said to become extinct by just next year, but people will not act significantly enough because they don’t believe that we would let something like that happen.
But in reality, there are already so many animals that are extinct from the wild, like the giant tortoise or species of deer, and so many heading to extinction like the Amur Leopard, where only 45 are said to remain, and the Javan Rhino, where there are no more than 50 and none in captivity.
and lets not forget the Northern White Rhino, where literally 4 remain.
It is so important to act while they are still with us.
THANK YOU ^^^
I know this isn’t related to cetaceans but I remember when my girlfriend told me that she used to watch videos of the Thylacine as a child and sob because it was extinct and it was her favourite animal. It really is ridiculous that animals we have video footage of are extinct. Like in the not so distant past we let animals die out because of our excessive ruining of their natural habitats. We need to stop endangering wildlife now.
Pass this around, everyone!
