India hasnt seen a species extinction as an independent country. But that could change. Do you know of a bird called the Great Indian Bustard?
Allow me to acquaint you. THIS IS A GODDAMN THREAD. SO READ ON.
The Great Indian Bustard is endemic to India.

The amazing fact is that it was to become our national bird but it was denied the honour for the worry that its name might be misspelt! Bastard 😒😒

But this is not it. Infact the National bird title is the least of it. India has been pretty hostile to this majestic bird.
The bird has vanished from nearly 95% of its historical range.
Less than 150 remain today.
Take a look at this map. And let that sink in for a sec.
