Chronicling Sixth Great Extinction

And here we were complaining about 21 day quarantines and multi month lockdowns. This poor bastard lived by himself for two and a half decades.

"The man, whose name was not known, had lived in total isolation for the past 26 years.

His body was found on 23 August in a hammock outside his straw hut. There were no signs of violence.

The man was the last of an indigenous group whose other remaining six members were killed in 1995. The group lived in the Tanaru indigenous area in the state of Rondônia, which borders Bolivia.

The majority of his tribe were thought to have been killed as early as the 1970s by ranchers wanting to expand their land.

The Man of the Hole is thought to have been about 60 years old and to have died of natural causes.

There were no signs of any incursions in his territory and nothing in his hut had been disturbed, officials said, but police will still carry out a post-mortem investigation."
Always like to post some good news. I recently was pleased to learn that the population of northern sea elephants has rebounded from near extinction to number in the hundreds of thousands. Huge, ugly and aggressive the big males are and can scare away beachgoers and other recreationists.
