Flores Green Pigeon

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, and dry savanna. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The Flores Green Pigeon is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Flores Green Pigeon feeds primarily on fruit and therefore a forest habitat is essential for its survival. Its relatively small population qualifies this species to be categorized as a "Vulnerable" one. While hunting poses somewhat of a threat towards the Flores Green Pigeon, its primary threat remains as the loss of habitat, even though it may seem to be relatively immune to the problem. More

The Flores Green Pigeon Treron floris (Vulnerable) is known from many islands in Indonesia's Lesser Sundas. However, all recent records are from the relatively large islands of Sumbawa and Flores, where the species is rare and uncommon respectively. Recent survey work by BirdLife's Indonesia Programme has discovered good numbers of the species on the islands of Alor, Lembata and the tiny Pulau Besar (where this species was commonly seen by a Cambridge expedition in 1993).
