    A species becomes extinct when the last existing member dies. A species is considered extinct when no more living members can be found either in captivity or in the wild. http://www.birds.cornell.edu/ivory/08_09stories/ACEextinctionpaper

    Animals die all the time, sometimes in large numbers. However, at the same time plenty more are being born. Thus, most species offset the death rate with many new births. When a species' equilibrium is thrown off, though, and the death rate eclipses the birth rate, it begins down a slippery slope toward dying out completely. When a plant or animal dies out to the point at which it has no living specimens either in the wild or in captivity, it's considered to be extinct. http://curiosity.discovery.com/question/when-is-species-considered-extinct

    spceies extinct conditions 1)not much avalaibility of food and space 2)changing climate/habitat 3)massive use of hunting of a particular organism 4)if species are kept in only one region not allowing dem to migrate artificially then when any sudden events like earth quakes etc make dem extinct as other areas are not having so it might there conitnuity will be stop..

    A species becomes extinct when its existing members die out. This can be because of changing climate/habitat, scarce resources, natural disasters, food chain unbalanced,poaching, and many more tragic things.

    a species becomes extinct when one or more members of that species have an unwanted mutation in their DNA or when they cannot sustain the environment they live in hope that helps :)

    what if some dna samples are taken before the population is reduced to zero , the dna is magically/scientifically brought back to life, there is enough samples to restore the population , was the species extinct while it was only dna in a cryogenic fridge stored for a long time

    When that theoretical situation becomes a reality ... you create a better word to describe temporary extinctivity ... until then, there is no need

    @UncleRhaukus when the last member of a species dies ... and you bring it back to life using CPR a minute later ... was the species extinct?
