Animal extinction is a natural phenomenon. However, to maintain the balance of nature, usually, the species that can’t adapt to the changing environment, are replaced by better ones. This is, nevertheless, not the case with the animal species that became extinct in the 21st Century. Especially the ones whose extinction we owe to events like amazon wildfires.
Humans are one of the main reasons behind the species that became extinct recently. Nevertheless, there are also species like rock pigeon, rats, and dogs that have adapted very well with humans. But, the environmental threat of species like dogs show that these too usually contribute only negatively to the environment.
