Last fall, I wrote a post entitled "Too Many Doves", which was to illustrate that the Mourning Dove population of 400 million birds shouldn't be taken for granted, a point proven by the extinction of a bird that used to number in the billions: the Passenger Pigeon.Project Passenger Pigeon group.
The message of my original post was that there is a lesson to be learned from the extinction of a species that was so numerous that its mass flights would literally darken the skies. This is one of the goals of Project Passenger Pigeon as well. Right now, they are hard at work on a documentary called "From Billions to None: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction". Here's where you can help.
The project has launched a Crowdfunding Campaign to help fund the film's production. Check out the campaign page where you can see a trailer of the film. If you are able, please join me in helping this film become reality by making a donation. There are many contribution levels available, and I'm sure they'd appreciate anything you can give.
I know that I'm looking forward to seeing the finished documentary!
