This is a longer version of our fundraising video for From Billions to None: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction. This documentary will recount the total destruction by humans of the most abundant bird species in North America, and possibly the world. We will use the centennial anniversary of the extinction event to highlight current conservation challenges and success stories.

2014 will mark the centennial of the birds' extinction. The film will explore how this event occurred and put it in context of today's conservation challenges and accelerated species extinctions. We are planning a multi-media event: a television documentary broadcast, the publishing of a book by Joel Greenberg and a national educational outreach campaign known as Project Passenger Pigeon. The outreach component is led by Greenberg and David Blockstein, Senior Scientist at the National Council for Science and the Environment, and a diverse consortium of over 150 American and Canadian institutions, scientists, scholars and authors, with the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum/Chicago Academy of Sciences as the lead sponsoring institution.

The promo includes roughed out scenes such as a storyboard for a live action and computer animation depiction of the pigeons as experienced by John Audubon, preliminary interviews and scenes that begin to tell the story of the pigeon. (Use browser back arrow to return to your previous page)
