We’ve been working with the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation (MWF) to prevent the extinction of endemic species on Mauritius and Rodrigues for many years. An important part of this work is supporting the development of education programmes that encourage people to value and protect the species we’re working together to save.

Once widespread on Mauritius and Réunion, by the end of the 1980’s the Echo Parakeet (Psittacula echo) was on the brink of extinction with less than 20 individuals remaining in just 50km2 of the Black River Gorges National Park.
