DODO (Raphus cucullatus): SPECIES ACCOUNT

GEOGRAPHIC RANGE

Dodos and solitaires are Extinct, no longer existing, but were once found on the Mascarene Islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues, and perhaps Réunion in the Indian Ocean.


HABITAT

Dodos and solitaires inhabited woodland areas.


CONSERVATION STATUS

The dodo and the two species of solitaires are Extinct, due to human hunting and to the introduction of non-native species such as cats, rats, and pigs.
