Last Bird in the Wild

Today has been announced that one of the two remaining Kingfisher birds from the island of Madagascar died last night.

The surviving Kingfisher bird, named Martin, is now 24 years old and is not expected to survive another year. Since the couple never reproduced, Martin has become the last non-synthetic bird alive on Earth.

The Committee for the Conservation of Animal Species did not consider birds “a species of significant cultural impact to the development of the Artificial Brain”.

It is still in question if the last couple of humans, who also happen to be Martin’s keepers, will ever be preserved for archeological reasons.
