Rajen Sookhareea from Mauritius' National Parks and Conservation Service holds echo parakeets in Black River, Mauritius, April 16, 2008. Once famous for the extinction of the dodo, Mauritius has had remarkable conservation success since then, using intensive and cutting edge techniques to save several species including the pink pigeon and the Mauritius echo parakeet. Part of the problem for many of these birds is that they evolved without any natural predators, making them vulnerable to the arrival of man some 400 years ago. Picture taken April 16, 2008.

A pink pigeon sits in a cage in Black River, Mauritius, April 16, 2008. Down to just a dozen birds in the 1970s, the pink pigeon has been brought back from the brink of extinction to about 380 birds today. Conservationists say the key to success has been intensive management, although captive breeding programmes were stopped about a decade ago. Today the birds are held if they are sick or if they need to be ringed or electronically tagged for tracking purposes. Picture taken April 16, 2008. REUTERS/Ed Harris (MAURITIUS)

An endangered pink pigeon sits on a tree on Mauritius' Ile Aux Aigrettes April 16, 2008. Endemic to Mauritius, the pink pigeon was facing extinction in the 1970s with just a dozen or so birds remaining. Almost going the way of the dodo several centuries before, the pink pigeon suffered following the introduction of new predators such as rats and monkeys and the loss of natural habitat. Intensive conservation has slowly brought the pink pigeon back from the edge, with almost 400 birds in the wild. Picture taken April 16, 2008. REUTERS/Ed Harris (MAURITIUS)
