“The Lost Bird Project is a moving tribute to species that have been lost through human action or indifference. With more and more birds going the way of the Great Auk, it should serve not just as a memorial, but as a goad to action.”—Elizabeth Kolbert, author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe

“The Lost Bird Project is a wonderfully original, moving, and educational work of tribute to extinct species of birds that once populated the American wilderness. Its sculptures, and their placements, are unique. What a grand idea!”—Richard Rhodes, author of John James Audubon: The Making of an American

“To honor these birds, and our loss of them, as this book will do, is a natural, necessary, and self-respecting part of our human journey.” —Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self
