Foreword by Henry Fairfield Osborn. William Temple Hornaday (1854-1937) was an American zoologist, naturalist, and conservationist, was the first director of the New York Zoological Park (the Bronx Zoo), and was a pioneer in the early wildlife conservation movement in the United States. This volume examines the causes and the status of the extermination of birds and wild game and addresses the need for new legislation, at both the national and state level, and reviews management strategies for the preservation of threatened species.
