Another animal has gone extinct


1. Another animal has gone extinct in our time. It`s Black Rhino.
I wonder if '1" means "2" or "3".
2. There is no Black Rhino left in the world.
3. There are some Rhinos left in the world.

    Actually, we say things are extinct when they are believed to be extinct in the wild even if there are some left in zoos. Also, it is only one subspecies of the black rhino that has been declared extinct - the western African black rhinoceros.
