Undertake emergency actions to understand and document the causes of the population collapse of the Seychelles magpie-robin (Copsychus sechellarum), which went from 38 to 12 individuals on Aride Island in the Seychelles in 2014; and take immediate actions to prevent further transmission of the disease, which is likely caused by a protozoan parasite, to other islands.

Strategic Direction: 2 Enable civil society to mainstream biodiversity and conservation into political and economic decision-making.
