One hundred years ago today, Martha died in the Cincinnati Zoo: she was the last known Passenger pigeon, once the most numerous bird in North America. In honor of the anniversary of her passing, The Last Menagerie is featuring a story and illustration I created in honor of Martha.  Please check it out, and take a look at the work of New York artist Nicole Əntēbī, who has created a series of six commemorative plates in honor of species that have gone extinct.
