The echo is one of just nine surviving bird species that are found only on Mauritius. Currently, the wild population is found in a mountainous 50-square-kilometre area in the southwest of the country.
The Mauritius fody is found only on the tiny island of Mauritius, off the east coast of Africa. The creation of the Macabe/Bel Ombre Nature Reserve in 1974 has helped to protect remaining fody habitat.
Native only to Mauritius, the Mauritius kestrel was historically found throughout the island. By the early 1970s, its range was reduced to the mountainous Black River Gorges in southwestern Mauritius.
The pink pigeon used to be widely distributed throughout its endemic island of Mauritius. They have been brought back from the brink of extinction by intensive conservation techniques.
