Congratulations, Humanity, You've Let The Western Black Rhino Go Extinct

Filed under: Sad SadEndangeredRhinos

The western black rhino is officially extinct now. Well, that sucks!

We previously mentioned one wildlife group already declared the Western Black Rhino extinct.

Originally, we thought they might have jumped the gun a little, seeing as how the World Wildlife Fund had estimated there were still about 4,000 of the rhinos left.

Well now, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the largest conservation network, has declared the subspecies totally extinct.

Dead. Gone. Donezo.

Poached into extinction by heartless poachers. Thanks for that.

The chair man of the IUCN species survival commission said:

Rescued Sea Lions Returned To The Ocean!!

Filed under: Sea CreaturesRescueSea Lion

In Peru, several sea lions were found washed ashore, injured.

Thankfully they were rescued by the Organization for Research and Conservation of Aquatic Animals (ORCA).

The ahmayzing group is used to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing marine creatures, so they had no problem scooping up the six sea lions into their loving arms and bringing them back to health.

No one knows who hurt the sea lions, but it's guessed it might have been fishermen.

They tend to hate the sea lions because they eat lots of fish.

Regardless of what happened, they were healed up and made sea worthy again!

So the lil cuties were eventually released back into the ocean!

Check out the video (above) to see the sea lions making a run for freedom!!

Rescued Sea Turtle Moves To Vegas!!

Filed under: Sin CitySea CreaturesTurtleRescueShark

OD is a 320-pound, 50-year-old sea turtle.

He was rescued from the Florida Keys in 2008 after he got sick.

Now, he's finally moved to his forever home!

After literally being FedEx'd to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, he's now finally settling into the hotel's 1.3-million-gallon Shipwreck Exhibit.

That sounds like a HUGE tank! He's joining two other green sea turtles, sharks, rays, fish and more! 22 other species in all!!

That's ahmazying!

The aquarium's director said:

"Shark Reef Aquarium guests can visit OD while learning about the turtle's wild habitat and the impacts humans have on endangered green sea turtles. We are honored to offer OD a permanent home and are committed to creating an enriching environment for his continued health."

So not only will OD be all sorts of healthy, he'll help people learn about conservation.

That's double great!! Way to go, Mandalay Bay!

Check out the video (above) to see OD getting ready to ship out!
