Lost Birds and
the Art of Conservation

Savanna Gallery
(Located in the Savanna Grill)
February 4, 2022 - May 30, 2022

The Lost Bird Project is an acclaimed sculpture installation by artist and sculptor Todd McGrain, featuring five extinct
North American bird species — the passenger pigeon, great auk, Labrador duck, Carolina parakeet and heath hen.
The Project uses art to raise awareness of vanished species and inspire a greater connection and stronger relationship
with the Earth.

The Lost Bird Project’s magnificent bronze sculptures will be displayed throughout the Zoo, with prints and photographs
featured inside the Savanna Gallery. The breathtaking works of artists Charles Thomas and Katherine Cudney complement the importance of the conservation message of The Lost Bird Project. Thomas’ landscapes pay tribute to the varied habitats that
are vital to the preservation of species. Cudney‘s works highlight species brought back from the brink of extinction and
the hope that their conservation success stories provide. Both artists’ artwork will be for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the non-profit Phoenix Zoo.
