Pink or Reunion Island Pigeon

Streptopelia [mayeri or duboisi] (= Streptopelia mayeri) (Prévost, 1843)

The Pink Pigeon, Columba mayeri, is a species of Columbidae (doves and pigeons) endemic to Mauritius, and is now very rare. It is the only Mascarene pigeon that has not gone extinct. It was on the brink of extinction in 1991 when only 10 individuals remained, but its numbers have increased due to the efforts of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust since 1977. The book Golden Bats and Pink Pigeons by Gerald Durrell refers to the conservation efforts. The IUCN downlisted the species from critically endangered to endangered on the IUCN Red List in 2006. Mauritius has a series of stamps depicting the endemic Pink Pigeon. Source: Wikipedia
