I wanted to remember some of the extinct species that no longer exist, not to bring up blame for why they are extinct, but to remember their divine expression upon our planet.
“To wantonly destroy a living species is to silence forever a divine voice. Our primary need for the various life forms of the planet is a psychic, rather than a physical, need.’ How important it is to remember those lost voices!”~Thomas Berry
1. The Dodo Bird. The dodo is an extinct flightless bird that lived on the island of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. The dodo is a relative of pigeons and doves, it’s weight averaged from 22 to 40 pounds, and stood 3.3 feet tall.
Since there are so many, I will make a series out of remembering those that are gone.
