In the summer of 2008, yet another Seychelles endemic land bird was introduced to their coral island. 23 Paradise Flycatcher's, previously only found on La Digue island, were transferred to their new home on Denis.
This latest move makes Denis Island one of the key environmental jewels of the Seychelles. In recent years work has been underway to slowly return the vegetation to it's natural form involving the stripping out of some of the coconut trees and replacing these with original trees.
Since 2007, several species of birds have been successfully introduced; these include the Seychelles Fody, the Seychelles Brush Warbler, the Seychelles Magpie Robin, and now the famous Paradise Flycatcher. These birds join the Seychelles Blue Pigeon, already well established on the island.
