The same thing happened with the passenger pigeon. By the time they realized they had to breed the survivors, it was too late. Now it's the monarch butterfly.

Second year of a Ban on hunting down here, and possibly an extension.

Seen in today's papers, 3 hand tied small Iguanas, really cruel.

Wild meat is free and makes $$$$$$$
Wish they would just stop.

Fortunately, the large ones around this area have the protection of the neighbours.
Thanks Jim.

These days, the list is almost endless. There are plants and animals we haven't even discovered yet that are in danger of extinction.
