Rodrigues Warbler Acrocephalus rodericanus

IUCN Status: Endangered now near Threatened

The Rodrigues Warbler Acrocephalus rodericanus is one of the two endemic passerines still surviving in Rodrigues and classified as endangered.


Since 2009, MWF has focused more on this bird and observes and performs basic monitoring of their nesting locations throughout the island.




In 2010, population and habitat surveys on the Rodrigues Warbler provided a good scientific base to continue with more monitoring work in the future.  Largely due to the habitat restoration work, the population of Rodrigues Warbler has increased from 30 individuals in 1970s to 4,000 individuals in 2010!
