The passenger pigeon once ruled the skies of North America, numbering in the billions and comprising upwards of 25% of the region’s bird population in the mid-1800s. By 1914, however, the species was extinct—a downfall hastened by America’s growing hunger for land development and hunting. Author and naturalist Joel Greenberg will discuss how the passenger pigeon’s extinction may inform today’s conservation decisions.
