The Lonely Dodo, A Cute Animation About the Last Dodo Narrated by Stephen Fry
by Kimber Streams at 3:17 PM on July 8, 2013
“The Lonely Dodo” is a short animation created by Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in which narrator Stephen Fry tells the story of the last lonely dodo bird on the island of Mauritius.
The Lonely Dodo... was created by Durrell to highlight the plight of the dodo, to tell people about what it is doing today to stop the extinctions of other animals around the world, and - if you're ready - to help you to join us in our mission!
Who are Durrell?
Short story... we save species from extinction - and have been for 50 years. In that time, we’ve worked with countless species, with many such as the Mauritius kestrel and pink pigeon that simply would not be here today were it not for us, our partners and especially our fantastic supporters.
Durrell... and you!
We think... it’s simply wonderful that you share our passion for stopping animals from going the way of the dodo. Discover more about how, with your help, we’re preventing precisely this, against all the odds.
