About this book

Language: Spanish

The last Pyrenean ibex died in 2000 in the valley of Ordesa, located in the Pyrenees. It was the first extinction of the twenty-first century. So far, few details of its story are known and it is difficult to understand why man has not been able to save this helpless animal, which has enjoyed a century of legal protection.

It was not easy to find answers. By studying books and old sheets, reports, photos, and zoological collections, and interviewing people who have been with the Pyrenean ibex the pieces of a complicated puzzle are brought together. The question remains what to do with the legacy and memory of this animal.

Summary in Spanish:
El último bucardo, la última cabra pirenaica, murió en el año 2000 en el valle de Ordesa, situado en el Pirineo. Fue la primera extinción del siglo XXI a nivel mundial. Hasta ahora se conocían pocos detalles de su historia y es difícil comprender por qué el hombre no ha podido salvar este animal tan indefenso, que ha disfrutado de un siglo de protección legal.

No ha sido fácil encontrar respuestas. Libros y láminas antiguos, informes, fotos, colecciones zoológicas y entrevistas con personas que han estado con el bucardo aportan las piezas de un puzle complicado. Queda la pregunta de qué hacer con el legado y la memoria de este animal.
