The Extinction and Survival of the Species
“Larger than a swan, with the body of an ostrich and the talons of an eagle.“
At the end of the 16th Century, the Dodo was discovered on the island of Mauritius, a flightless bird that lived peacefully among exotic plants and animals. Just a hundred years later, the Dodo had disappeared, becoming part of the large number of species that are now extinct.
In her new illustrated book, Isabel Pin explores how a harmless bird could disappear so quickly and considers what we can do to prevent more animals from simply disappearing.
