Welcome to the Passenger Pigeon Education and Photography Project GOFUNDME page. My name is John ODonnell Rosales and I am one of a handful of people in the world to own a Passenger Pigeon Specimen. There are only approx. 1500 Passenger Pigeon specimen's in the world and of that number many are "skin's", not preserved and mounted specimen's. My Passenger Pigeon's name is "Pepe". He was killed sometime between 1875 and 1895 in Michigan and  preserved and mounted. The last wild Passenger Pigeon killed in the wild was in 1902, in Indiana. They once numbered in the Billion's and their range extended from Canada, The United States and south to Mexico and Cuba. The last Passenger Pigeon was "Martha", she died in the Cinncinatti, Ohio Zoo, on September 1st, 1914. I have begun this project 100 year's later, to raise awareness of the finality of "extinction" and of the sad History of the Passenger Pigeon. I use "Pepe" to teach children (and adult's) about Extinction, Endangered Species and Cryptozoology. I am permitting individual's to have their photograph's taken with "Pepe", so they have a tangible connection to this extinct and  beautiful species. This momento is something which they can cherish and pass down and remember. // I am setting up this GOFUNDME account to raise fund's for this project "long term", please take a second and donate $5.00 (or any amount you desire) to assist me. If you are traveling to the Mobile, Alabama area and would like to have your photograph taken with "Pepe", feel free to contact me at the Blog listed below. // If you would like to learn more about the Passenger Pigeon, its' History and Extinction, please visit www.PassengerPigeon1.Blogspot.Com
