La Digue is the last refuge of the black paradise flycatcher, which locals call the veuve (widow). This small forest reserve has been set aside to protect its natural habitat. At the time of writing there were 20 pairs within the reserve. The male has long black tail feathers. The ranger – Josiana – claims that sightings are guaranteed if she goes on a small tour with you – we confirm. Other species include terrapins, fruit bats and moorhens. Several walking trails punctuated with interpretive panels about flora have been set up. There's also a small information centre .
