BIRDS — Hundreds of bird species are on a track toward extinction. If these species blink out, we’ll have just one species to blame: ours — PLANET EARTH OUR HOME group

PLANET EARTH OUR HOME group is our flagship group with over 12,000 members and over 752,000 photos and videos.

Contest — Interior Architecture

No Bird Extinctions Allowed

The situation of the Wood Thrush is dire, but 91 other bird species are much worse off. These are the Alliance for Zero Extinction bird species of the Americas —those found only in a single site and surviving on the edge.

Take Stresemann’s Bristlefront of Brazil: This unique, burrow-nesting species numbers fewer than 15 individuals. Hawai’i’s Maui Parrotbill has as few as 500 surviving members.
