Con

The dodo, or Raphus cucullatus if you want to get fancy, is an extinct species of flightless bird that was native to the tiny island nation of Mauritius before it sadly died out.

My opponent has awarded me the spelling nad grammar points and this is evident since they have failed to capitalize 'I' and 'I'm'.

The dodo became extinct for three reasons. First, before humans arrived on Mauritius – an island in the Indian Ocean where the dodos had evolved – they had no natural predators and as such were easy to hunt by travellers looking for a food supply. Second, the humans who landed on Mauritius brought with them numerous foreign animals not native to the island such as pigs, dogs, and macaques, which are reported to have frequently raided the dodo’s nests to take their young. Finally, as more and more of Mauritius became colonised so that its natural resources could be harvested and exported, habitat loss severely reduced the territory in which dodos could successfully live and reproduce.

My opponent's poor spelling and grammar is poor so S AND G point goes to me. Essentially my opponent concedes in the comments by stating that this debate isn't serious as well as this my argument is accurate and hasn't been refuted adequately by my opponent. Therefore I have met my burden of proof and have won the debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro doesn't meet their burden of proof at all. The only proof Pro gives is, "I'm a dodo," which I can't buy at all, since it (1) is insufficiently warranted, and (2) isn't explained whatsoever. Con shows that humans caused the extinction of dodos in Mauritius. While Con has no sources, the onus is entirely on Pro, which Pro fails to fulfill. As such, I have no choice but to vote Con on arguments.
