IBA Criteria

Year of most recent IBA criteria assessment: 2000

Populations of IBA trigger species
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) of estimate Population estimate IBA Criteria Triggered
Dark-tailed Laurel-pigeon Columba bollii LC resident 1995 abundant A1, B2, C1
White-tailed Laurel-pigeon Columba junoniae NT resident 1995 rare A1, C1
Island Canary Serinus canaria LC resident 1995 abundant B3

Note: This table presents the IBA criteria triggered and the species that triggered then at the time of assessment, the current IUCN Red List category may vary from that which was in place at that time.
