GOLDEN WHITE EYE
Habitat: The golden white-eye is native to wooded areas near steep slopes and cliffs of the Nothern Mariana Islands.
Why They Are Endangered: Once found on all 14 islands, the golden white-eye can now only be seen on two: Aguijan and Saipan. Due to the increase of the human population in Saipan over the last two decades, this species has suffered, almost to the brink of extinction. In addition, the brown tree snake has proven to also be a threat to the bird. (Arkive)
