The Dodo Bird

Image of The Dodo Bird

The tragic tale of the Dodo bird is similar to that of Lonesome George. Both lived on peaceful islands where the ecosystem allowed them to thrive. But when the colonists came, the peace was forever disturbed. It's apparently a myth that the birds were driven to extinction just by hunting alone, but it definitely was a part of the eventual demise. Some say the biggest problem was with the rats that came along on the ships to the Island of Mauritius and reaped havoc and spread disease. When we look at the Dodo bird we look at another helpless victim of the concept with the biggest causality count ever, colonialism.
