found nowhere else on earth: the Henderson Fruit-dove, Henderson Lorikeet, Henderson Crake and Henderson Reed-warbler. It is the only known nesting site of the endangered Henderson Petrel and the global headquarters of the gadfly petrel group, the most truly oceanic of all birds. Also holding nine unique plant species, eight endemic snail species, dozens of unique invertebrates and crucial nesting habitat for marine turtles, it is clear that Henderson Island is one of the crown jewels of UK biodiversity.

Birds: The flightless Henderson crake, Henderson fruit-dove, Henderson reed-warbler, and the especially rare Henderson lorikeet; these four species are listed as being vulnerable to extinction on the IUCN Red List. A few species have already been extirpated, including three doves and a sandpiper, as well as a shearwater species and the globally threatened white-throated storm-petrel, according to the kiore eradication feasibility report.

found nowhere else on Earth: the Henderson fruit-dove, Henderson lorikeet, Henderson crake, and Henderson reed-warbler. The island is also the only known nesting site of the Henderson petrel, and represents the global headquarters of the highly threatened gadfly petrel group. Despite its remote and uninhabited status, Henderson’s biodiversity is currently under threat due to the presence of introduced Pacific rats. More

Ptilinopus coralensis, Henderson Fruit-dove Ptilinopus insularis and Whistling Dove Ptilinopus layardi. These globally threatened species face threats from invasive, introduced species (such as snakes and rats), or from the destruction of their forest habitat. Similar threats, as well as introduced bird diseases such as avian malaria, affect the region’s parrots. Kuhl's Lorikeet Vini kuhlii, Henderson Lorikeet Vini stepheni, Blue Lorikeet Vini peruviana, Ultramarine Lorikeet Vini ultramarina, Crimson Shining-parrot Prosopeia splendens and Masked Shining-parrot Prosopeia personata are shown.
