The Grand Cayman Thrush Turdus ravidus, a species found in Grand Cayman and nowhere else in the world, was first recorded in 1886, during an ornithological expedition to the Cayman Islands. It was last seen in 1938, in forests near East End. It is now considered extinct. Habitat loss, compounded by hurricane damage, is blamed for the demise of the Grand Cayman Thrush. More

the Grand Cayman thrush, a close relative of the St. Lucia forest thrush, went extinct as the species vanished right along with its habitat. Thanks to years of litigation by the Center, in 2008 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed to list the St. Lucia forest thrush under the Endangered Species Act. More

found in the islands, the Grand Cayman thrush (Turdus ravidus), has recently gone extinct. The floral community shows strong affinities with both Cuba and Jamaica, as does the breeding landbird fauna and the lepidopteran community (Bradley 1994). In contrast to these groups, about 75% of the herpetofauna and 30 of the 48 species of non-marine molluscs are endemic to the Caymans (Seidel and Franz 1994). More
