Mauritius is constantly working on the conservation of its fauna and today the island is the home for some of the world’s rarest birds. Mauritius kestrel, Pink Pigeon, Mauritius Cuckoo-Shrike, the Mauritius Bulbul, and Mauritius Olive White-Eye are only a few of the unique birds which can be found on the island.

The best places to see as many birds as possible at their natural habitat are the Black River Gorges National Park, Bassin Blanc, Le Petrin, andI le aux Aigrettes. You can go at any time, but avoid the cyclone season which runs from January to February.
