Birds of New Caledonia

€ 4.49 *

New Caledonia is an archipelago of Melanesia east of Australia. The isolated location (about 1200 km from Australia) has led to the evolution of an incredible number of endemic animal and plant species and this also applies to the birds. Not only the main island of Grande Terre, but also its satellite islands, especially the Loyalty Islands, have their own specialties. In addition, there are some other bird species with very small distribution area, e.g. extending to Vanuatu. Therefore, BirdLife International has declared the archipelago a Primary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-P). Naturally, The climate is tropical, but the maritime influence has a strong moderating effect. The cooler, dry season with temperatures between 20 and 23 ° C lasts from June to August. In any case, this biodiversity hotspot is a fascinating destination.

New Caledonia is located in the Pacific Ocean. Legally New Caledonia belongs to France. Because of the number of bird species with restricted range occurring in this area, BirdLife International assigned it a Primary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-P).
