Naturally, evolution causes certain species to get extinguished from the environment. Though a slow natural process, evolution has of late picked up high pace due to increased human activities. Hunting, deforestation, hunting, global warming are all some of the human activities that have greatly contributed to the extinction of several animal species.

10. Caribbean Monk Sea
These Caribbean Monk seas grew up to about 8 feet and were colored either brownish or grayish. They lived in the West Atlantic Ocean and in the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico. They could be found in groups of about 20-40 and were normally docile animals making them easy to be preyed on.
There were plenty of hunting activities in the 17th century by plantation farmers in search of lubrication to their plantation machinery. Other hunting activities were carried out by fishermen for oil for their lamps. By the end of 19th century, their numbers had greatly reduced and by the end of the 20th century, this species had already become among the most endangered species in the world.
