#TBT: The tragic death of the Tasmanian tigers

He was the last surviving Tasmanian tiger. But at the time, no one suspected that his death could lead a whole species to extinction. That was back in 1936. #TBT

    “It won’t happen to us”: The optimism bias.. we hit the rock bottom as a humanity.. as an intelligent race... My heart is broken as it feels helpless...

    As the most intelligent species on planet (what we humans proclaim every single day) we've failed... We maybe scientifically advanced. But we lack the much required compassion and humility that we should possess as the most advanced species... We're proven murderers of thousands of such species...from dodos to giraffes...we owe a lot to this planet... I can only hope in future we may understand what it feels like to lose one single organism which is eventually part of a bigger organism called earth...
