Less than a month after Vietnam’s Javan rhinoceroses were declared extinct, another rhino species has perished. Africa’s Western Black Rhinoceros has officially been declared extinct.

According to One Green Planet, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has shared the tragic news along with the warning that two other subspecies are nearing extinction. Simon Stuart, head of IUCN’s Species Survival Commission said, “Human beings are stewards of the earth and we are responsible for protecting the species that share our environment…In the case of both the western black and the northern white rhinos the situation could have had very different results if suggested conservation measures had been implemented.”

The IUCN’s Red List includes 61,900 endangered species of animals, and many are dangerously close to vanishing. IUCN’s Jean-Christophe Vie says, “The world is full of marvelous species that are rapidly moving towards becoming things of myth and legend.”
