    It's sad to hear and what's worse is he won't be the only one. Many are now saying there will definitely be a mass extinction and 100 years from now many animals will be gone including all the big cats, elephants, giraffes and countless others.

    And maybe us too - we're not immune.
    There have reportedly been 5 mass extinctions in the history of the planet, most brought about by climate change, according to scientists.
    The worst one almost brought life on earth to an end - 96% of species vanished. Scientists recognize these events when species go missing from the fossil record.

    Biologists suspect we’re living through the sixth major mass extinction. Earth has witnessed five, when more than 75% of species disappeared. Palaeontologists spot them when species go missing from the global fossil record, including the iconic specimens shown here. “We don’t always know what caused them but most had something to do with rapid climate change”, says Melbourne Museum palaeontologist Rolf Schmidt.

    The last male. Gone forever. I find this very sad.
