In what’s a rather depressing purchase, the single feather from an extinct New Zealand Huia bird sold for a record-breaking $8,400NZD ($6787).

The feather was originally only expected to fetch between $400-$600. The buyers are reportedly collectors of artifacts from the Maori; the indigenous people of New Zealand who used the feathers as ornaments. The last reported siting of the Huia was in 1907.

According to Wikipedia, the Huia became extinct “primarily as a result of overhunting to procure mounted specimens for European museums and widespread habitat destruction.”

Go team humans! Well, at least we’ll always have a souvenir of their destruction…
