Aardman Animates The Lonely Dodo
Alistair McGowan added: “It's not often one is asked to become a dodo, especially given that we already know how that story ends! Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust exists to make sure that it doesn't go the same way for other endangered species, so I became their dodo to help spread that message! Glad to say that I'm still here, and it was actually rather fun, despite the seriousness of the subject!”
Thrilled with the final result Durrell’s CEO Hugh Roberts said: “Gerald Durrell’s books were the gateway to discovery of the natural world for many. He was enormously aware of the effect mankind was having on other species with which we share this planet. He realised that without intervention the loss of species would continue with a devastating effect to life on earth. Gerald sadly died in 1995, but his message continues to be extremely topical and important.
