There are 389 species of birds that are considered “Endangered”. An additional
197 species are considered to be “Critically Endangered” meaning that if something is not done quickly, these species will soon become extinct. An additional 4 species are effectively extinct in the wild, but hang on in small captive populations. Why are so many species of birds in trouble and what can be done about it? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with ERIK HIRSCHFELD, a freelance writer, guide and consultant in ornithology. Together with Andy Swash and Robert Sill, they have written THE WORLD’S RAREST BIRDS, a state of the art volume that describes and illustrates all of those endangered bird species and explains why those species got to be so rare. It is one of the finest books on the challenges facing the natural world today and what it will take to save these endangered species for future generations to enjoy.
