Lost Animals of Oregon


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Many species of animals that thrived in Oregon 200 years ago are now gone. A distinct species of Oregon buffalo was hunted to extinction before Europeans even arrived. Next up was the sea otter, eliminated by Russian fur traders. Then went the wolves, grizzlies, condors, fishers, lynxes, and other victims of settlement.

First Broadcast: 1991
Producer: Tuttle
