Seychelles Warbler Project

A group of evolutionary and conservation biologists who study the Seychelles warbler.

The Seychelles warbler is a small passerine endemic to the Seychelles islands. The original remnant population of this rare bird has been studied on Cousin Island since 1981, with intensive monitoring since 1985. In 1988, 1990, 2004 and 2011 new populations were established by translocation on the islands of Aride, Cousine, Denis and Fregate respectively. We now have over 3000 birds on five islands making the Seychelles warbler an outstanding conservation success story.
