Another bird species added to the Extinct list.

Alaotra grebe confirmed extinct

Around 190 bird species out of more than 10,000 known are thought to have gone extinct since modern records began.

This is very sad... yet another species gone from this world thanks to human actions. :(

It is, however, good to see that conservation efforts are not entirely futile.

The Azores bullfinch (Pyrrhula murina) has been downlisted from "Critically Endangered" to "Endangered" after efforts to restore its habitat.
In Colombia, the Yellow-eared parrot (Ognorrhynchus icterotis) has also benefited from protection of its nest sites and education programmes, leading to its status being downgraded to "Endangered".
