Dodo Tagua Pendant

  • £25.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The dodo was native to the island of Mauritius, off the coast of Africa. Some animals that evolve on an island without predators never develop a fear of them, and the dodo was notably one. Due to its trusting nature the dodo was remarkably easy to catch and eat, and this led to its famous extinction in the 17th century. 

At Manchester Museum, we are committed to raising awareness of conservation issues, and we embed sustainability into everything we do. 

This pendant of the much-loved dodo is hand carved from a tagua nut, a seed from a type of palm that grows in the South American rainforests. Often know as vegetable ivory, tagua is an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to animal ivory. 

Approximate necklace drop 45cm.
