30- Name:  Dodo
  Scientific Name:  Moho nobilis

A flightless bird about the size of a turkey, the Dodo was found on three small islands in the Indian Ocean. Humans arrived in about 1600, and Dodo numbers began to fall due to hunting and the introduction of pigs and monkeys, which fed on the eggs and chicks. By 1681, the Dodo was gone forever.
