Pacific pond turtle (Actinemys marmorata)

The Pacific pond turtle was once a familiar sight in the ponds and lakes of southern British Columbia and Vancouver Island and along the west coast as far south as California and Mexico. This species is no longer found in Canada.

Native only to Mauritius, the Mauritius kestrel was historically found throughout the island. By the early 1970s, its range was reduced to the mountainous Black River Gorges in southwestern Mauritius.

The pink pigeon used to be widely distributed throughout its endemic island of Mauritius. They have been brought back from the brink of extinction by intensive conservation techniques.
