Auks and Science
For a day of facts here is a video that summarizes some of the extinction causes of the Great Auk.
Emma Caton does a fairly good amount of homework prior to posting videos. These make her videos informative and she is thorough, which make sharing this one completely worth not posting all kinds of links in its place. I have a lot of respect for highly thorough zoologist/biologist types that post educational videos and materials as there are many less helpful science articles and videos online that people tend to see first when searching the internet. Regardless, enjoy this video and also check out this article on some scientists from the U.K. and their attempts to reconstitute and reintroduce the Great Auk to he wild.
