The Lost Bird Project is led by sculptor Todd McGrain. His impressive sculptures of extinct North American birds are permanently installed near the last sighting of the bird.
Five sculptures have been placed: Great Auk in Newfoundland, Passenger Pigeon in Ohio, Labrador Duck in New York, Carolina Parakeet in Florida, and Heath Hen in Martha’s Vineyard.
The last Eskimo Curlew was seen on Galveston Island in the early 1960s. Please join us in thanking the individuals, families, businesses and foundations for helping us reach our goal. The Eskimo Curlew memorial sculpture will be created and installed on Galveston Island. Stay tuned for more news soon!
