Default Project Passenger Pigeon - Lessons from the Past for a Sustainable Future

Project Passenger Pigeon - Lessons from the Past for a Sustainable Future
Quote:
Explore this Amazing Bird and Its Message

The story of the passenger pigeon is unlike that of any other bird. With a likely population between 3 and 5 billion, it was the most abundant bird in North America and probably the world. Yet human exploitation drove this species to extinction over the course of a few decades.

2014 marks the centenary of this extraordinary extinction. Project Passenger Pigeon will mark this anniversary and promote the conservation of species and habitat, strengthen the relationship between people and nature, and foster the sustainable use of natural resources. The project aims to engage a broad audience through a documentary film, a new book on passenger pigeons, this website, social media, curricula, and a wide range of exhibits and programming for people of all ages.

Sounds like a great mission. I definitely think we need to continue to strengthen the relationship people have with nature.
