Race to Save the Lord God Bird

Race to Save the Lord God Bird
by Phillip Hoose
The tragedy of extinction is revealed through the dramatic story of a legendary bird, the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, and the people who tried to paint it, shoot it, sell it, and in a last ditch effort, save it. This true story spanning two hundred years, provides a window into our country’s changing ideas about conservation.

The Ghost with Trembling Wings

The Ghost with Trembling Wings
by Scott Weidensaul
Three or four times an hour, eighty or more times a day, a unique species of plant or animal vanishes forever. Yet every so often one of these lost species resurfaces. The author pursues stories ofloss and recovery, of endurance against the odds, and of surprising resurrections.

Read breaking news reports from across the country about this historic discovery of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Arkansas. More links will be added and updated as they become available.
