Endemic species

The endemic species of Mauritius such as the Pink Pigeon, Echo Parakeet, Mauritius kestrel, and the National flower, Trochetia, are among the most threatened in the world and active conservation is essential to prevent the loss of more species on the island.

Government is implementing several measures to ensuring a sustainable management and restoration of native terrestrial Mauritian fauna and flora so as to retain its genetic diversity for the future generations. This is carried out through in-situ and ex-situ conservation strategies, ecosystem restoration, public awareness, promotion of ecotourism and implementation of international biodiversity agreements.
