    The golden toad was last seen in 1989 in the Costa Rican cloud forest of Monteverde—and 5 years later, its disappearance was the first extinction to be blamed on humanmade global warming. New evidence, however, suggests that humans may not have been at fault after all.

    In 2011, with no sightings in a decade, the International Union for Conservation of Nature formally declared that the western black rhino had gone extinct. Unfortunately, the western black rhino will not be the last rhino species or subspecies that we lose.

    Mexican Grizzly Bear, 1964

    Think grizzlies only lived in cold places? The Mexican grizzly, like the grizzly that lives in the norther U.S. and Canada, are both subspecies of the brown bear. The Mexican subspecies was hunted to extinction by ranchers because the bears would kill their livestock. Only 30 were left by 1960, but by 1964 it was considered extinct.

    Pyrenean Ibex

    The Pyrenean Ibex was a species of Ibex native to the Iberian Peninsula in Europe that went extinct in 2000. The species had been quite common in Southern Europe up until the 19th century. The causes of extinction are though to be over hunting and the loss of habitat to livestock. It’s possible that diseases introduced by domesticated animals played a part as well though.
