Cocos Island Cuckoo

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and subtropical or tropical moist shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The Cocos Island Cuckoo is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

endemics such as the Cocos Island cuckoo have evolved in isolation far out in the Pacific. This endemism is even evident underwater with seven unique species of fish here including the Red-lipped Batfish. Diving here is necessarily by self-sufficient dive liveaboard. We arrange trips to both islands using fully equipped liveaboards, as well as the unique experience of exploring underwater by means of a submersible. More
