About This Project
My research concerns the population genetics of the Seychelles Magpie Robin. This species is listed as 'Endangered' on the IUCN Red List. This research will contribute a unique genetic component to the long-term management programme already in place. A recent, rapid decline in one island's population highlights the fragility of the species, and marks an important time to implement new conservation methods to save one of only 12 bird species endemic to Seychelles.
