'Back From the Brink' Masterworks for Nature Show

June 9 - August 15, 2014

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the last known passenger pigeon, Martha (shown at right), who died at the Cincinnati Zoo, despite attempts to find her a mate and save the species, which once numbered in the millions.
Over the course of human history, we have, unfortunately, caused the end of numerous species.
This exhibition features species that have made a comeback, showing those moments when our species has recognized our own folly and done something to make a difference. It is a quest that we still pursue.
