Seychelles Islands, birds and wildlife

The Seychelles Islands host world class outstanding wildlife in a clean environment. A number of endemic species are only living at one or more of the Seychelles Islands.

Among the Seychelles Islands special wildlife you find 12 endemic species of birds, and many of these are endemic. In fact more than 90% of avian extinctions during the last 300 years have been island endemics.

Besides the many interesting endemic birds you will find some much more common speicies breeding in high numbers. I will say, that the amazing thing is their big numbers and your possility to approach and experience these bird species at very close hand. Some of these bird speices are really beautiful and charming birds.

Bird Island is as well a paradise for ornithologists as a unique private island with only one resort (Bird Island Lodge) and completely surrounded by pristine white beaches. - It is very difficult to leave Bird Island, I must say.
