Wildlife,  Marine Life, Reptiles, Vertebrates & Earth Ecosystems forms the cycle of life together, they are dependent on each other. this further increased our curiosity. We wanted to dive deep and know Which species have we lost? Which species have gone Extinct?

Following is  the list of Ten Species which we have chosen. All species which have gone extinct were important. All species which are critically endangered are important. We can not provide all the information in a blog post. That  is why  we have chosen ten of the wildlife species which are following.

This species was regular amid the Holocene and Upper Pleistocene, amid which their morphology, basically a few skulls, of the Pyrenean Ibex was observed to be bigger than other Capra subspecies in southwestern Europe from a similar time.

In January 2000, the Pyrenean ibex ended up extinct. Different subspecies have endure: the western Spanish or Gredos ibex and the southeastern Spanish or Beceite Ibex, while the Portuguese ibex had just turned out to be wiped out. Since the remainder of the Pyrenean ibex wound up wiped out before researchers could satisfactorily break down them, the scientific classification of this specific subspecies is disputable.

Following a few fizzled endeavors to restore the subspecies through cloning, a living example was conceived in July 2003; be that as it may, it kicked the bucket a few minutes after birth because of a lung deformity.
