I wish the Dodo Bird wasn't extinct what a fascinating bird don't you agree? Dumb hunters who hunted them down.

Sure but Albatross. Albatross are cool, still here but threatened with extinction and in some time we may be saying what a cool bird too bad it's extinct.

Yeah, I really wonder what it was like, lol. You grow up hearing about the dodo bird, but you never get to see one. Really sad to lose such a unique species like that. I didn't realize the albatross was endangered. That's too bad.

There are a few species of Albatross most are endangered the rest threatened.

They sort of resemble what dodos must have looked like when young

They are huge, love to dance and mate for life. Super cool birds who are under appreciated.

Aaaw, they're cute. :) Are the species survival plans in place for these guys and are people breeding them? It'd be sad to lose one of these.

No. If a rare one winds up in a zoo setting it's a non-releasable rescue. I suppose they would be difficult to breed. They have one baby and care for it a about a year and don't mature to breeding age till 5 years but really wont bred till 7-10 years old. Would surely fare better with captive breeding as less than 1% survive now due to introduced predictors like rats and cats. Then the adults get taken out by commercial fishing lines though barring tragedy they live up to 50 years but it's guessed they actually can live much longer the oldest estimated to be around 60 so if there were captive breeding it would be a big commitment. They could really use the help though.

That's too bad, and weird they're not on a species survival plan. They're cool animals.
