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.
