Songbird ReMix Threatened Endangered Extinct3
The Threatened, Endangered, Extinct series within the Songbird Remix library is more than a “just another” collection of 3D bird models. It is content with a message and one that enables 3D Artists and Educators to illustrate the struggle and in some case, extinction, of many avian species by creating imagery that not only entertains but educates.
This collection includes the birds found throughout the world that are in trouble, on the brink of extinction or we’ve lost forever. Critically endangered birds such as the Polynesian Millerbird, Spix‘s Macaw and the threatened Kea.
The Millerbird is facing extinction because for a ripple effect from a seemingly innocent introduction of rabbits to its habitat. The rabbits multiplied and ate all the vegetation, which killed off the insect life that the Millerbird needed to survive. Spix‘s Macaw fate was due to introduction of Africanized “killer” bees into its habitat. The bees took over their nesting cavities. The Kea, an unusual alpine parrot (and consider one of the smartest animals on the planet) is threatened because of its ability to adapt the changes man has given it.
