Recently, US Fish and Wildlife Service officials declared the extinction of 23 wildlife species — 11 birds, 8 freshwater mussels, 2 fish, a bat, and a plant — closing the chapter on a lengthy, time and money-consuming search for these species. Meanwhile, scientists in Florida are working around the clock to save its reefs from an affliction known as the “stony coral tissue loss disease (SCTLD)”, which had been plaguing its waters since 2014.
