#Make100     Birds YOU will Never See

Martha the Last Passenger Pigeon
Martha the Last Passenger Pigeon

The  project is simple... I guess.  

These are paintings of birds you and your family..and future family will never get a chance to see again....   A lot of reasons can attribute to their extinction.

  This project is more to remind folks of these lost feather friends as well as to honor them.  Also to remind use humans how fragile the environment really is... I hope you will enjoy each of these little guys and girls...and yes they have hats!

6 DAYS LEFT!!  If we reach  the  $10K mark I will be sending you Birds you Will Never See Again  Note Cards (check the project updates for details)

YES!!  I reached 50.. 1/2 there.  So a NEW REWARD!!

NEW REWARD!! Dodo Love!!! To celebrate hitting the 1/2 point in my MAKE 100!!
