    I have seen many in captivity - hopefully can be re-introduced to the wild!

    It makes me cry to see their extinction, and more so due to human's action.

    Animal survive and evolve through millions of years. But at the end nothing will survive to human. How many species are gone because of nature vs because of us.

    Most Americans can care less and do not believe in climate change or anything about the environment, more concern for their phone and games.

    While investing in the research to bring mammoths back to life from the dead... why cant we follow the same strategy to conserve this species??? I mean we do have the methods in conservation biology to save asiatic elephants from dying by reintroducing the long lost genes of mammoths in those elephants... then why not this species???

    White people always trying to make pets out of everything. They even tried to keep Black People as pets.

    Humans honestly can't live life with out destroying or posting their will on everything they touch. Such a sad species.

    This is why going vegan doesn't help, most of the vegan products are imported from other countries who would do anything to meet the huge demand.

    These birds are not extinct as they are still bred in captivity.

    Wasteful food consumption does this. Eat only what you need. Save forests converted to farmlands.

    Here’s an idea Go back to those third world nations and force them to be treat their enviorment better May seem harsh and yeah it is literal green fascism but perhaps it may be the only way to defend these endangered species
