The headline above was from an article in The New York Times in the mid-1930s. Bond was a noted ornithologist with a brand-new book, "Birds of the West Indies," by then. (But contrary to the sub-headline) he had no doctoral degree ... )
The introduction to the book went into great detail about the dangers facing the birds of the West Indies -- from humankind to hurricanes.
One of the goals of this book is to raise awareness -- and money -- to help the environment in the Caribbean. To that end, all proceeds from talks and appearances generated by this book will go to The Nature Conservancy's Caribbean initiative.
You can read more about TNC's work -- including restoring coral reefs, coasts and oceans -- in the Caribbean here.
Bond's work in the Caribbean and his efforts to protect birds and other wildlife there have been featured in other posts on this blog.
