The White-eye and the Bluebell in Mauritius

Artists for Conservation

Mauritius may be just a small island in the Indian Ocean and the former home of the Dodo, but it still has an amazing array of endemic species, most of them unfortunately endangered. Like in most isolated places, Mauritian plants and animals have evolved in such a way that they have become dependant on one another.

This is the story of a very rare songbird and an even rarer plant.

The Olive white-eye (Zosterops chloronothos) is a member of the large family of Zosteropidae, small passerines native to tropical islands of the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific.
