The websites is indeed under construction, but will be restored to its old glory as soon as possible I hope! Each week or month more new updated!
And yes, I've made this website, mainly because I was shocked by the amount of species and subspecies that became extinct in the past 500 years! I didn't know that it were so many! So I've made this website to tell it to other people. The more people know of this the more they will do to protect the earth's biodiversity!
I've got the knowledge, by searching the web alot, mailing people, reading books, and my future job is indeed associated with animals. I study now animal management in the Netherlands with the specialization: Wildlife Management & Zoos.
Even though it is an older post, I completely agree with the first post. It is next to impossible to find the information that I find on this website. Most other websites just have information on the most popular extinctions. After reading the hundreds of other extinctions that I did not know about, it is amazing what we really have done to our world. It is very interesting but also very sad. Thanks for creating this website Peter, it is awesone!
