Lord God Bird — Figurative Art by Eli Jayne
The Lord God Bird is so iconic: big, beautiful, mysterious—a symbol of everything that has gone wrong with our relationship to the environment.
There is such a sense of finality about extinction.
I thought that if someone could just locate an ivory-bill, could prove that this remarkable species still exists, it would be the most hopeful event imaginable: we would have one final chance to get it right, to save this bird and the bottomland swamp forests it needs to survive.
