The birds on Christmas Island are loved for their uniquely bright colours and diversity.
Listed as vulnerable, these birds are threatened by predation and habitat destruction.
They need help for their populations to survive.

The extinction risk is very real. Population numbers of some of these wonderous and rare birds are quite low, so habitat preservation is vital.
We need to act now to save these pretty and precious Australian birds.
Christmas Island is globally unique and an internationally renowned seabird rookery.
You may have heard of the Island’s internationally renowned red crab migration, but did you also know, some of the world’s rarest birds nest there every year?
Its beautiful tropical rainforests, wetlands and coral reefs are home to a huge number of endemic species and its closeness to South-east Asia means you’ll see pretty and precious birds not seen on mainland Australia.
