The Extinction of the Passenger Pigeon
The Passenger pigeon, considered by many to have been the most numerous single species of bird on the entire planet,, was driven to extinction in less than a few decades. The story of this species demise is one that should be retold to very generation and never forgotten. The unfortunate extinction this species will hopefully lead to the saving of other species.
