News from the Natural World: The Great Indian Bustard birds has started tweeting more to save its species.
The Great Indian Bustard bird is found on the Indian subcontinent. It is a large bird with a horizontal body and long bare legs, giving it an Ostrich like appearance. In addition, it is among the heaviest of the flying birds. But the Great Indian Bustard bird is also critically endangered. In fact it is one of the rarest birds in the world, there are only 200 of them left.
Their population has been wiped out by hunting, collisions with high tension electric wires, fast moving vehicles and free-ranging dogs in villages. Furthermore they have suffered great habitat loss as a result of widespread agricultural expansion and mechanised farming. The Great Indian Bustard bird has been pushed to extinction by the human race. But a plucky bird by the name of Brahma had come up with a plan.
Great Indian Bustard starts tweeting more
Brahma was the most intelligent of all the Great Indian Bustard birds. The only way to save his species was to get more attention. But with only 200 of his species left what could he do? Brahma started researching humans to understand how they managed to get so much attention. He decided to analyse the greatest attention seeker of them all, the President of the United States.
Brahma noticed that Donald Trump got so much attention because he was tweeting all the time. Not only was he constantly tweeting he was also taking a lot of care and crafting his tweets to seek as much attention as possible. Brahma noticed that Trump wasn’t the only human tweeting for attention, they were all at it. In fact tweeting for attention had become a viral activity. Brahma knew how he could save his species.
Brahma went back and told all the other Great Indian Bustard birds that they all needed to tweet more and put WAY more effort into their tweeting. They strutted off and started tweeting as loudly as possible! Surely this much tweeting would attract the attention of the outside world and the Great Indian Bustard would be saved!?
Tweeting to stop extinction
One day a tourist noticed the birds making an absolute racket. He asked what the hell they thought they were doing. Brahma said that they were tweeting as hard as they possibly could. They learnt from Donald Trump that it was the best way to get attention. The tourist laughed at Brahma, he told them they needed a phone to tweet, tweeting for humans was different than it was for birds.
The human tourist told Brahma the Great Indian Bustard that he had missed the point, it wasn’t the right why to get attention to save his species. Brahma turned to the human and said: “No it is YOU humans who’ve missed the point.”
