Lost Bird Project

One hundred years ago this September, the last passenger pigeon, Martha, fell dead in her cage at the Cincinnati Zoo. With her death, the passenger pigeon, once the most numerous bird species in the world, became extinct.

This program will feature the film, “The Lost Bird Project,” highlighting the work of artist Todd McGrain and his effort to create memorials for five extinct species close to the area where the last of their kind lived.The film will be followed by a panel discussion with experts including Kim Kaufmann and Stan Searles, moderated by Harvey Webster. We envision a lively discussion between panelists and the audience about successful strategies for preserving habitats and species, including how participants can become involved.

Please join the Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland, the Kirtland Bird Club and the Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society on March 9th at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Auditorium (adjacent to the main gate in the Administration Building) for this unique and free program.
