A sad day for the natural world.

As this article mentions, while many species become exctinct each year, it’s rare when we know the exact day that it happens. This may be the case for the po’ouli, one of the many native Hawaiian honeycreeper species that have become extinct or on their way there with the help of man. According to statics I’ve seen, Hawai’i is home to nearly 75% of the endangered plant and animal species in the US.
