The Wild Kratts crew lament the extinction of different animals in recent history and how they’ll never ever be able to see them.

Science Concept: Extinction — different types of animals can go extinct and disappear from the planet in a number of ways — habitat loss, overhunting, etc. Once an animal goes extinct, it is lost forever.
