Above is a picture of a hairy-eared dwarf lemur that has a population of about 100- 1000 today and is nearing extintion. Animals have been going extinct for years and humans are one of the reasons causing the extinction. Many species have gone extinct due to hunting and destruction of the animal's home. Yet, for many species that have said to have been extinct there have been reports on sightings of footprints or farm animals being killed by an unknown source (such as sheep). I am writing this to inform you about a few of the species that have been extinct for many years, forgoten forever.
