The Extinction of the Bramble Cay Melomys

Green Humour goes black today, to mourn the extinction of the Bramble Cay Melomys, a rodent native to the Bramble Cay in the Great Barrier Reef's Torres Strait. This island dweller became the first mammal in history to have gone extinct because of human-induced climate change (news here).

The comic appears on my Gocomics page today.

  1. It is sad to see why man hasn't yet realized the disastrous consequences that stem out of his need and greed for consumption.
