Viking Optical is proud to have become a BirdLife Species Champion for the Critically Endangered Seychelles Paradise-flycatcher. Time is running out for the 192 bird species in the world recognised as Critically Endangered – the highest threat level on the IUCN Red List – and we share BirdLife’s vision that the loss of even one would diminish us all.

BirdLife Species Champions provide financial support and help promote targeted conservation actions that are coordinated under the auspices of the BirdLife Preventing Extinctions Programme.  Our support as a Species Champion will help BirdLife increase vital conservation action for this species as well as helping many other globally threatened birds.  You can learn more about the extraordinary Seychelles Paradise-flycatcher, the innovative conservation project we are supporting and the race against time to prevent the extinction of this incredible species here.
