Millions of biological species constitute the life on earth. New species have been regularly discovered.
Around 8000 new species are identified each year. Preserving these species and their habitats from
extinction is very important as the loss of the species can affect the biodiversity largely. This paper focus on
primarily focus on ‘Extinction and loss of bio-diversity’. This passage shows as how extinction has become a
source for loosing the biological richness. The major causes of the extinction of species were discussed as
Overexploitation, Pollution, Habitat degradation, Deforestation, Introduced species, Invasive species, Global
warming, Disease eradication, Co extinction of a species etc. Managing the loss of species is analysed with
mainly Selective Breeding and Cloning. Again the History of Extinction, effects of extinction and managing
the loss of species are discussed.
