An elegant visualization about the latest mass extinction

Anna Flagg's ‘A Disappearing Planet, the latest interactive visualization from ProPublica, was inspired by Elizabeth Kolbert's book The Sixth Extinction. Take time to explore it. Having seen this d3.js-based data project in the making during the past five weeks, I must confess that I really like how it turned out stylistically. The graphic is elegant and clean. And the little animated photos are quite nice, aren't they?
