Introduction

Did you know that the cutting down of forests in the Northwest almost made the northern spotted owl extinct? Humans have been dusting crops with the chemicals such as DDT to get rid of rodents and insects not knowing that owls are a more powerful tool for catching rodents than any chemical. Thanks to the hard work of scientists who have been studying owls we now have laws in place protecting them from extinction.

But what about other birds like the Ivory Billed Woodpecker or the California Condor? Are they extinct or on the edge of becoming extinct if humans don’t change their ways?

Become part of an elite team of scientists to discover the issues facing these birds and others. Help us find out what humans can do to change their future.

The Task

The Birds of the Wild Organization needs a group of

three scientists that will investigate the life of the birds on this

page and answer some important questions about them. Your

group of scientists will present the information you have found

about these birds in a creative way at the National Bird Safety

Conference. Each Scientist must choose one bird to investigate.

The Process

  • Once each scientist has picked a bird, your group is ready to begin the investigation. Each
  • scientist will find the information they need in the links below that match the bird they choose.
  • You can use the following questions as a guide during your quest.
  • Is your bird extinct or heading for extinction?
  • What caused the bird to become endangered or extinct?
  • What is the birds habitat like?
  • Are there any measures being done to save your bird?
