Martha’s Question: “Have You Learned Anything From My Passing?”: Reflections on the Tragic Centenary of the Last Passenger Pigeon
What: Monday Night Seminar When: Monday, September 15, 7:30 p.m. Where: Cornell Lab of Ornithology, 159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca Speaker: Dr. John W. Fitzpatrick, director, Cornell Lab of Ornithology Title: Martha’s Question: “Have You Learned Anything From My Passing?”: Reflections on the Tragic Centenary of the Last Passenger Pigeon Description: To this day the Passenger Pigeon story represents the most famous human-caused extinction in history. Dr. Fitzpatrick will review the remarkable biology and the tragic disappearance of this, once the world’s most abundant bird species. He will explore how and why a bird could achieve such spectacular numbers, and also the multiple forces that led to its catastrophically rapid population collapse. The very last Passenger Pigeon, named Martha, died in the Cincinnati Zoo on September 1, 1914. Dr. Fitzpatrick asks the question that Martha might ask if she could do so today: Have humans yet learned to respect abundance in nature? There are important lessons we can take from the world’s fisheries and some emerging conservation success stories in this bittersweet tribute to Martha and her lost species. Admission: Free Contact: cornellbirds@cornell.edu, 800-843-2473
