Extinct Species Charts

The total number of known extinct species is 905 species. Most of them occurred during the 1900s (see charts below). The starting date for the inclusion of extinctions into the charts was set at 1500 AD to be in line with the starting date used by the Committee on Recently Extinct Organisms. Estimate of the number of species is still unknown , ranging from three to ten million to the tens of millions, and many of them have been lost forever without being noticed by science. Therefore, the extinction rate may also be underestimated.
