It’s a dog eat dog world sometimes. Every day over 50 species of animals disappear forever from this Earth. Puff, gone in the blink of an eye. Scientist estimate that that fearsome number could actually be higher, in the hundreds.

Overpopulation, contamination, natural disasters, weather phenomenon, wars, nuclear proliferation, all these elements plus many more strangeling the planet’s fauna and flora.
