Bird Watching (UK) - - News -

Con­ser­va­tion­ists are cel­e­brat­ing the im­proved for­tunes of two Crit­i­cally En­dan­gered bird species and new plans to help a fur­ther two. Thanks to ef­forts from the RSPB and lo­cal part­ners the Saint He­lena Na­tional Trust and the Govern­ment of Montser­rat, two of the world’s rarest birds have been down­listed from Crit­i­cally En­dan­gered to Vul­ner­a­ble on the lat­est up­date of the IUCN Red List. The Saint He­lena Plover and Montser­rat Ori­ole were brought back by new habi­tat, con­trol of preda­tors, and care­ful mon­i­tor­ing.
