Monk SealThe Caribbean monk seal has been officially declared extinct.  It’s the only seal species to go extinct specifically from human causes.  Both the Hawaiian monk seal and the Mediterranean monk seal survive but are endangered.

As we continue to feel the impacts of global warming, there are several other seal species that might be heading down the path to extinction.
