Caribbean monk seal extinct

I recently wrote about endangered species. It was then a small surprise to read that the Caribbean monk seal is officially extinct. (What a stupid term; officially extinct. Either it is, or it is not. We don’t know, all we know is that it is quite sure that the seal is extinct. Oh well.) NOAA Fishnews reports that the Caribbean monk seal is removed from the endangered species list; it has not been seen since 1952. I choose to accompany this post with a drawing of the Caribbean monk seal:
