Threatened species of Otus insularis

Other Names:
Threatened species of Seychelles scops-owl

Otus insularis is threatened by logging despite much of its habitat falling within the Morne Seychellois National Park, although habitat encroachment from real estate development may prove to be a greater threat.


Fieldwork in 1992--1993 showed a Otus insularis population of 80 pairs (though reports from elsewhere suggest this may be a minimum).
