History of extinction of animal and plant species

Timeline of animal and plant extinction

The history of the Earth is inseparably connected with the extinction of animal and plant species. We had no influence on many of them as human beings, because just like dinosaurs, they were extinct before humans appeared on the Blue Planet. However, many animal species have disappeared from the Earth’s surface as a result of human activity.


Today we present you the most complete list of extinct species over the centuries. We have included this summary in the form of a calendar, a timeline. The resulting list will show how many species have gone extinct over the centuries.

A journey through 120 centuries of history

Today, we take you on a journey for 12,000 years to trace the extinction of species. We go back to the 10th millennium BC to reach 2018 AD.
