The Florida grasshopper sparrow is the most endangered bird in the United States. There are currently less than 50 pairs left in the wild as a result from habitat loss, depredation from invasive fire ants, climate change and a parasite that is sweeping through south Florida. State, federal, and local biologists are working tirelessly to save the remaining wild pairs and have started a captive breeding program with hopes of one day reintroducing them into the wild.
