Audubon Print Now on Display at the Office of Sustainability

John J. Audubon’s “Ivory-Billed Woodpecker” is now on display at the UW-Madison Office of Sustainability! The print is from Audubon’s famous book, Birds of America, which was printed between 1827 and 1838. The ivory-billed woodpecker is classified as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and it is listed as a class 6 species by the American Birding Association, which means “definitely or probably extinct.” The large woodpecker hasn’t been definitively sighted in the wild since 1944. While this print illustrates an important story about conservation, it also looks beautiful in the Office of Sustainability!
