  • “Extinct in the wild” means a species survives only in a captive environment
  • “Locally extinct” means a species has ceased to exist in a particular area but may exist in other areas.
  • “Functionally extinct”, which means the species continues to exist but it has too few members to enable to reproduce meaningfully enough to ensure survival.
  • “Globally extinct”, it means a species has no surviving member anywhere. Such a conclusion is reached when there is no reasonable doubt left that its last member has died.
