The Mangrove Finch is one of the Galapagos Islands' most endangered species. The species is in danger of going extinct. Mangrove Finches is one of 15 Darwin's Finches species found on the Galapagos. They are well known for having a small population and a very restricted area.
Mangrove Finch can be found mainly on Isabela Island, Galapagos. It is well adapted to the mangrove forest habitat. Their survival is threatened by habitat degradation and loss due to invasive species such as parasitic flies like Philornis downsi. To save the finch from extinction conservation efforts are underway, such as captive breeding programs and habitat restoration projects.
