Most people consider the Dodo Bird to be synonymous with human-driven extinction. First discovered by Dutch sailors in the late 1590s, it would be completely wiped out in just over 60 years. The pursuit of the last remnants of this iconic creature continues to this day, with an incomplete composite skeleton selling recently for just under half a million dollars.
With Molly Brandenburg & Richard Rossner
Have you ever spent hours looking for something you simply lost? How about a hundred years? How about looking for a missing airplane? Or a vanished civilization? Every other Monday, Gone searches for everything lost. From D. B. Cooper to the Holy Grail, the Etruscan language to early Russian cosmonauts; if it disappeared, we’re looking. After all, just because something is gone, doesn’t mean it can’t be found. Gone is a production of Cutler Media and part of the Parcast Network. Ad-free archives of episodes six months or older are now available through Stitcher Premium.
