[Story of Dodo]
The first recorded mention of the dodo was by Dutch sailors in 1598. The dodo was entirely fearless of humans. This fearlessness and its inability to fly made the dodo easy prey for sailors. Also, humans destroyed the forest habitat of the dodos. The last widely accepted record of a dodo sighting is the 1662 report by shipwrecked mariner Volkert Evertsz of the Dutch ship Arnhem, who described birds caught on a small islet off Mauritius:
"These animals on our coming up to them stared at us and remained quiet where they stand, not knowing whether they had wings to fly away or legs to run off, and suffering us to approach them as close as we pleased. Amongst these birds were those which in India they call Dod-aersen (being a kind of very big goose); these birds are unable to fly, and instead of wings, they merely have a few small pins, yet they can run very swiftly. We drove them together into one place in such a manner that we could catch them with our hands, and when we held one of them by its leg, and that upon this it made a great noise, the others all on a sudden came running as fast as they could to its assistance, and by which they were caught and made prisoners also."
All creatures are equal. All animals have the right to live like humans.
