Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be the last human on the planet? The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is showing you how lonely it would be with its new PSA titled “The Lonely Dodo.”

The video, posted below, shows a lonely dodo bird as it seeks for other dodo’s. After realizing how lonely he is, the dodo travels all over the world in search for his kind. He asks humans, cats, dogs, giraffes, elephants and many other animals, “Dodo”? Unfortunately, they shake their heads no, and the dodo ends up alone.

The PSA, narrated by British actor Stephen Fry, is a creative way to get people to recognize the importance of saving endangered species and treating wildlife with respect.

The PSA states, “Imagine you were the last of your kind, alone and lonely.” I can’t imagine being the only human.

The dodo bird has long been extinct, but other endangered animals like the Floreana mockingbird, the Ploughshare tortoise, the Hispaniolan solenodon, the Mountain chicken frog and the Pied tamarin, still have a chance.

“It may be too late for the dodo, but it doesn’t have to be too late for the other animals,” the PSA says.
