Tam, the last male Sumatran rhino in Malaysia has died. A female called Iman is now the only remaining member of the species in that country. After decades of deforestation and poaching, it's now thought only 30 to 100 Sumatran rhinos remain in the wild, most on the nearby island of Sumatra.

Spare a thought also for puffins. About 9000 puffins and other seabirds died within a few months in Alaska due to rising sea temperatures having caused fish to migrate elsewhere.
