Thank you for this wonderfully touching memorial. I just finished watching Birds of Paradise on Netflix and was moved by Paul Igag's gentleness. I am so sorry for those who grieve his loss. I can't honestly explain why I feel so touched, but it was amazing watching the scientists Miriam and Paul work. Others have put it well saying that your work and lives are inspiring and heartwarming. I think it is because here in America people often seem caught up in pop culture and media nonsense, while quietly behind the scenes scientists like Paul and Miriam are working to research, document, and save rare animal species.

Thank you with all my heart,

Christy Harter,

Los Osos, California, USA

An extradinary man and naturalist.  It is so sad that he has left this world and his beloved birds of paradise prematurely. I hope others will be inspired to take up his mission.

just felt so shock and so sad when I saw the end of the PBS BIRDS OF GOD, he seems strong and happy and really love his job in the vedio, I believe paul had devoted all his passion  to those gorgeous fantasic mysterious birds, he is great ! 

 

it is not very convenient for us Chinese to know the outstanding biologists like paul, but I really respect the people who can do sth to protect or to show the beauty of the world.

may he rest in peace.

Thank you Paul, for giving us a glimpse of such incrediable beauty in this world.  At the end of the PBS Nature documentary we viewed last night, we were so saddened to see that you had passed.  We both value the dedication & passion you lived and shared.

Fly away Paul.


04-20-2011 3:55 PM -- By: Tree,  From: Virginia, USA  

I am so sorry about Mr. Igag's passing.  I watched 'Birds of the Gods' and the happiness in his eyes when he saw his first Superb lifted my heart.


04-19-2011 7:14 PM -- By: Guy Hamilton,  From: Melbourne, Australia  

Funnily enough I never met Paul but I worked with him on a survey for the PNG LNG Project and I was always pleased he was on the job. He was solid and reliable. I am saddened to hear of his passing and wish his family well.

Wonderful bird documentaries!


04-07-2011 11:53 AM -- By: Robin Lyn,  From: High Rolls, NM  

After watching his engaging smile and his gentle ways in the film, I was shocked to see that he had passed away and came here in search of why.  I send my deepest condolences to all who had the honor to know him personally.  It is clear that his passing is a great loss.  He touched my life just watching him in the film...

A hole in our hearts for a man we never even met.


04-05-2011 5:12 AM -- By: Joey,  From: Seattle  

I saw your work in the Birds of Paradise documentary. I hope that I will one day find as much passion for life as I was able to tell you had in the short clips I saw of you.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Maraming salamat sa lahat ng ginagawa ninyo, Paul.  Just watching the short amount of time you were on camera on Birds of the Gods really inspired me.  You remind me of many of my friends from the Federated States of Micronesia.  You have so much passion for your work!  Sana'y magmamana kaming mga graduate student sa inyo.  Rest in peace.

Having seen Mr. Igag on the PBS show Nature: Birds of the Gods , it seemed to me his gentleness and sense of playfulness and excitement in his work translated to the camera, and thus to me as a viewer. I was very surprised to see the dedication at the end of the show.

What a trerrible loss to the world, as a whole.


03-31-2011 12:41 AM -- By: Gail,  From: Westport, CT  

I just saw the PBS show tonight and was awestruck by the majesty and mystery of these magnifcient creatures. I am not a religous person but I somehow found myself thinking of God as I watched the birds utterly transform themselves and proudly dance their surreal dances.  Equally moving to me was the quiet but profound passion Paul displayed for the birds and their enviroment. The one shot when he unexpectedly sees a blue bird for the first time and looks over his shoulder at the camera could have been that of a father watching his child born.  It touched me in a way few televised moments have.  RIP Paul.  And thank you from the bottom of my heart for the attention your work has brought to these unique beings.


03-30-2011 10:22 PM -- By: Tom Moore,  From: Whitby, ON Canada  

 The beauty that Paul and the team filmed was beyond belief and how much the people lived the life of the birds in their celebrations. Beautiful!

Thanks to the team and the contribution of Paul.
