The dodo died out in the 17th century and today it’s one of the best examples for an exterminated animal. But it is only one of many birds that are lost in Mauritius.

Abschied von Marcus Burkhardt

Alles was schön ist, bleibt auch schön,
auch wenn es welkt.
Und unsere Liebe bleibt Liebe,
auch wenn wir sterben.
