This class will focus on historical and contemporary conservation and extinction of birds. We will use case studies to highlight both successes and failures and then ask what lessons can be learned from them. Case studies will include the dodo, moas, California condor, Stephen’s island wren and golden-winged warblers, among others. We will discuss how the extinction of both declining and small populations can be prevented by studying conservation success stories such as the Bali starling and red- cockaded woodpecker. We will conclude by outlining what is being done for threatened species today and what other new and controversial approaches there are for conservation in the future.
