This is a fascinating account of our struggle to preserve the few remaining individuals of a species, which ultimately fails, but, nevertheless, should be apprehended by all of us in the hope that our understanding, empathy, and activism will help save those species presently on the precipice of destruction.
A narrative told with a reporter's flair, "The Race to Save the World's Rarest Bird..." is extensively researched, interesting, informative, spiritually challenging, and clearly written. I highly recommend this book to all who are concerned about man's unique role in the preservation ( and destruction) of all life on this planet.
I, too, strongly agree that "no species should go extinct quietly." I would like to thank the author for introducing me to the Po'ouli.
I recommend this book to any bird lover or anyone who wants to get a better grasp of what it really means to save the environment. I even recommended it to my husband and he, too, read it cover to cover.
