Biologists Race to Save Nearly Extinct Bird

In a desperate bid to save a nearly extinct species, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it's launching a captive breeding program for Florida's grass-hopper sparrow.

The local news media reported that if officials do nothing, experts predict the sparrow will go extinct in three to five years, just like its cousin, the dusky seaside sparrow. the dusky disappeared in 1987 when the last survivor died at Disney world.

If the Florida grasshopper sparrow vanished, it would be the first bird species to go extinct in the United States since the dusky sparrow.

Biologists estimate that few than 200 of the tiny birds remain. Biologists will look for eggs and talk them to Rare Species Conservatory Foundations in Loxahatchee to be placed in incubators.
