    About This Project

    Dodo Alive
    Contrary to popular belief, we are only just beginning to understand the dodo’s lifestyle. Out of all of the questions we have, finding out how the dodo evolved and used its peculiar skull is our top priority. Why and how did the dodo develop such a unique skull? This project is to fund research travel to Mauritius to create the first biomechanical model of the dodo skull and to develop further outreach activities for the Mauritian public.
