Goodbye Humans – 19 Rare And Adorable Animals Getting Extinct

This planet is not owned by humans. This amazing planet belongs to all the critters, animal species, plants and micro-organisms as well. They have an equal right to live here happily.

Ever since man started to take over the resources of planet Earth, the other living beings became marginalized and many gone extinct.

Scientists recognize that species continually disappear at a background extinction rate estimated at about one species per million per year, with new species replacing the lost in a sustainable fashion.

Occasional mass extinctions convulse this orderly norm, followed by excruciatingly slow recoveries as new species emerge from the remaining gene-pool until the world is once again repopulated by a different catalog of flora and fauna.

“When animals and critters disappear, this planet suffers. But when humans disappear, this planet thrives.”


Having a look at the below species and knowing such lovely adorable living things will be extinct in few years of time is heart wrenching. As co-inhabitants and dominant species on this planet, we humans have the responsibility to preserve all living species.

The Mexican Salamander

Animals getting extinct

These tiny amphibians are found in the lakes of South America. They have been on the endangered species list since 2010 and a survey in 2013 could not spot any of these creatures which raise the thought of whether they are already extinct.

Hope they are alive in some corner of a lake and we just want to see them thrive. Will God answer our prayers?
