Pink Pigeon

Nesoenas mayeri

The Pink Pigeon, "Columba" "mayeri", is a species of Columbidae 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.
