The Rodrigues flying fox Pteropus rodricensis is now found only on the Indian Ocean island of Rodrigues, where numbers have been as low as 70 individuals. The population on nearby Mauritius has already gone extinct.

Its main threat is deforestation which removes its habitat. Image: Pam Thomas/Lubee Bat Conservancy
