Description About the Art
In the 1800's, the population of the Passenger Pigeon numbered as high as five billion. They were the most abundant bird in North America. It is believed that the Passenger Pigeon named Martha, who died in the Cincinnati Zoo on September 1, 1914, was the very last of her kind. The main reasons for their extinction are the intense scale of their hunting, the rapid loss of their habitat, and their extremely social nature, which made them more helpless to our activities. Passenger Pigeons represent a failed conservation effort on our part because no one believed their extinction was even possible and because our efforts happened too late to save them. Five billion to extinct in 114 years.
