  5. Discover a special island and our collaborative efforts to protect its endemic species and habitats.

    Where is Selkirk and what is a Rayadito?

    Isla Alejandro Selkirk—named after the infamous 18th Century castaway—lies 875 kilometers from the Chilean city of Valparaíso. The island is one of three islands in the Juan Fernández Archipelago, a cluster of islands which is 61 times richer in endemic plant species per square kilometer and 13 times greater in endemic bird richness than the Galápagos. The International Union for Conservation of Nature, Birdlife International, the Alliance for Zero Extinction, and the World Wildlife Fund highlight the Juan Fernández Archipelago as one of the most ecologically vulnerable ecosystems in the world.

    The Másafuera Rayadito (Aphrastura masafuerae) is a critically endangered passerine in the ovenbird family and endemic to only one island in the world - Alejandro Selkirk. Only a few nests have ever been found, and only one caught on video (watch to the end).

    Partnering with CONAF (Chile’s Protected Areas and Forests agency), Island Conservation, the Municipality of Juan Fernández, the Chilean Environment Ministry, local NGOs, community leaders, and scientists.
