Domesticating of wild plant & animal species for human benefit has occurred many times all over the world, and has a major impact on the environment, both positive and negative. Wildlife conservation is an activity carried out to protect the earth’s biological diversity.

Extinction refers to the end of an organism or group of organisms. The moment of extinction is generally the death of the last individual of that species with the strength to recover. Since, a species' potential range may be very large, determining this moment is difficult, & is usually done retrospectively. So, wildlife extinction refers to the end of the wildlife species.
